UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — A US strategic bomber B-52H Stratofortress capable of carrying cruise missiles and nuclear bombs flew Friday along Russia’s northwestern border into the Baltic Sea region, says data from sites monitor the movements of military aircraft.
For the second time this week, a US Air Force B-52H Stratofortress bomber approached Russia’s northwestern border, flying this Friday over the waters of the Baltic Sea.
According to the websites that monitor the thefts of military planes, just like this Thursday, the bomber took off from the Barksdale Air Force Base, located in Louisiana. After the transatlantic flight, he flew over England and then crossed German airspace into the Baltic. Above this sea, he set sail for the maritime border of the Kaliningrad region.
At a distance of about 120 km from the Russian maritime border, the aircraft was in the area of Russian DCA action for a few minutes, after which it moved to an air base on the ground.

Also on Friday, an RC-135V strategic reconnaissance aircraft from RAF Mildenhall, England, was spotted near the Kaliningrad area, where it had flown for several hours. The Swedish reconnaissance aircraft Gulfstream 4 also flew Friday over the Baltic Sea.
