Two B-2s and two B-52s took off in Missouri and Louisiana, respectively, and flew 8,000 miles to a Hawaii bombing range in order to practice coordinated attacks. B-52s are optimized for standoff strikes using cruise missiles. The B-2s normally get in closer to drop satellite-guided bombs.


B-52s from Louisiana probably came in from Barksdale AFB.Barksdale is one of two remaining bases with assigned B-52 aircraft, all H models; the other is in northern North Dakota at Minot AFB. There is a missile field at Minot AFB containing Minuteman III missiles.
