Air Force sending B-2 stealth bombers to Guam

By Associated Press

JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR HICKAM, Hawaii (AP) Two B-2 stealth bombers based in Missouri will deploy to Guam late this month to maintain the U.S. strategic bomber presence in the region.

The planes from the 509th Bomb Wing at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri will temporarily operate out of Andersen Air Force Base in the U.S. territory.

Pacific Air Forces said in a statement Friday the deployment will allow airmen to become familiar with operating in the Pacific.

The U.S. military started rotating bombers to Guam in 2004.

Doing so allowed the military to compensate for the diversion to the Middle East of U.S. forces assigned to Asia and the Pacific. The military has also rotated the B-1 and B-52 bombers to Guam.
