B-52 bomber flies over Middle East
THE US military said it has again flown a B-52 bomber over the Middle East “to deter potential aggression” amid tensions with Iran, the first such flight under President Joe Biden. The B-52 flew nonstop from Louisiana’s Barksdale Air Force Base into the region. The plane went over both the Persian Gulf and Saudi Arabia, according to flighttracking data. The US military’s Central Command later published images of the bomber flying alongside Royal Saudi Air Force F-15s.
