B-2 bombers in Hawaii to support mission

B-2 bombers in Hawaii to support mission

Pacific Air Forces announced today that three B-2 Spirit stealth bombers and more than 200 Airmen from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, arrived Thursday at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

Bomber aircraft regularly rotate through the Indo-Pacific region, according to Pacific Air Forces, and are here in support of U.S. Strategic Command’s (USSTRATCOM) Bomber Task Force (BTF) mission.

“This training is crucial to maintaining our regional interoperability,” said Lt. Col. Joshua Dorr, 393rd Bomb Squadron director of operation, in a news release. “It affords us the opportunity to work with our allies in joint exercises and validates our always-ready global strike capability.”
