The US Air Force have deployed Rockwell B-1B Bombers to the US European Command, a few months after the last deployment. The Bomber Task Force returns to RAF Fairford in the UK; a standby bomber base for the entirety of the European Theatre of US military operations. This is so the bombers can participate in various NATO deterrence operations and exercises with allies; especially with the current situation in Eastern Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean.
