Two additional U.S. Air Force B-52H Stratofortress aircraft from the 5th Bomb Wing, Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, arrived at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, May 4.

The bombers join the four B-52 aircraft that previously arrived to Al Udeid in late April as they protect the orderly and responsible withdrawal of U.S. and coalition forces from Afghanistan.

U.S. Central Command is committed to providing the necessary force protection to ensure the drawdown is conducted in a safe manner.
