Watch as B-52 arrives at RAF Fairford

The video – taken by Cal Burkitt – shows one of the planes as they land into the Gloucestershire Royal Air Force base. 

At least four B-52s were due to fly to RAF Fairford today, it has been reported.

This comes as aircraft enthusiasts have been bracing themselves all week for the bomber planes to land at RAF Fairford.

According to a social media post on Sunday they have been heading from North Dakota to RAF Fairford as part of the Bomber Task Force mission strategy. 

Bomber Task Force missions help maintain global stability and security. 

The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a long-range jet-powered strategic bomber from the United States.

It is capable of carrying up to 70,000 pounds worth of weapons.

The B5-2 was built to carry nuclear weapons for Cold War era deterrence missions – the latest upgrades are expected to serve for the next three decades.
