KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft from the 100th Air Refueling Wing, Royal Air Force Mildenhall, England refueled U.S. Air Force B-52H Stratofortress aircraft from the 2nd Bomb Wing, Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana, during a Bomber Task Force mission off the Scottish coast Oct. 14, 2020.  Bomber missions familiarize aircrew with air bases, airspace, and operations in different geographic combatant commands. These missions build proficiency and confidence; if required, these bombers are able to execute decisive actions at the direction of the national command authority.
