August 29, 2020 – Escorted by MiG-21 aircraft from Croatia’s 191st Fighter Squadron, the US giant scored the skies as part of joint NATO activity

Earlier today, an American Boeing B-52 Stratofortress bomber made for impressive viewing as it flew in skies above Croatia. Flanked by two Croatian MiG-21’s, the display was part of joint NATO activity which saw a total of six American B-52 planes fly over all NATO member countries in North America and Europe in one day.

The B-52 is an American long-range, subsonic, jet-powered strategic bomber. Built by Boeing, it has been in service for the United States Air Force (USAF) since 1955. The bomber is capable of carrying up to 70,000 pounds (32,000 kg) of weapons and can travel more than 8,800 miles (14,080 km) without refuelling. 58 of the planes are still in active service for the USAF, with 18 further in reserve, and approximately 12 more in long-term storage.
