A B-52 Stratofortress heads toward its target at Pele Bombing Range, Hawaii. In September's Exercise Koa Lightning, B-52 aircrews dropped inert weapons on their targets for the first time. The aircraft were talked in to the targets by joint terminal air controllers on the ground. This training is critical in the war on terrorism, enhances security in the Western Pacific and provides integrated training opportunities.

Air Combat Command's B-52 is a long-range, heavy bomber that can perform a variety of missions. The bomber is capable of flying at high subsonic speeds at altitudes up to 50,000 feet. It can carry nuclear or conventional ordnance with worldwide precision navigation capability. In a conventional conflict, the B-52 can perform air interdiction, offensive counter-air and maritime operations. During Desert Storm, B-52s delivered 40 percent of all the weapons dropped by coalition forces. It is highly effective when used for ocean surveillance, and can assist the U.S. Navy in anti-ship and mine-laying operations. Two B-52s, in two hours, can monitor 140,000 square miles of ocean surface. (U.S. Air Force photo)

Bombers, like this B-52 Stratofortress ready to refuel from a KC-135 Stratotanker over Afghanistan, provide coalition ground forces on-demand close air support. Bombing support is just one of the services Airmen provide their sister services and coalition partners in Afghanistan and Iraq. The bomber is from the 2nd Bomb Wing at Barksdale Air Force Base, La.
