This is the incredible moment a fleet of B-52 Stratofortress bombers returned to the UK after an exercise in Norway, bringing back memories of the US bomber trails from WWII.

The planes came to the UK in the largest US bomber deployment since the Iraq War and landed at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire.

Six bombers, which carry nuclear weapons and precision-guided munitions, and 400 personnel arrived as a visual display of the US’s commitment to NATO amid rising tensions with Russia.

They returned to RAF Fairford after flying over Norway and stunning photos of them in flight recall similar scenes of US bombers from WWII.

Then, the B-17 Flying Fortress was employed in a bombing campaign of German targets and many planes were based at UK airfields.

B-52s have been a mainstay of the United States military for decades and are expected to remain in active service until beyond 2050.
