A U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress sits on the runway following a sortie in support of Diamond Shield 2019 (DS-19) at Royal Australian Air Force Base Darwin, Australia, March 26, 2019. U.S. Air Force participation in exercises such as DS-19 improves interoperability with allies across the Pacific region, allowing U.S. Department of Defense air elements to work with partner nations in the future to respond more effectively to a wide range of challenges including humanitarian crises and disaster relief.
