ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam --
A U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer takes off from Andersen AFB, Guam Oct. 25, 2016 to conduct integration training with Royal Australian Air Force joint terminal air controllers. While the two air forces share roots dating back to their respective formations, this is the first time in at least 10 years that B-1s have conducted close air support training in the vicinity of Australia. The B-1B is assigned to the 34th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron, deployed to Guam from Ellsworth AFB, S.D. as part of Pacific Air Force’s continuous bomber presence.
