The U-2s are swapping out. They run six month rotations, and the departing aircraft usually stays for about a week, while the incoming aircrew gets
familiar with operations and the area. Then they'll depart back for Beale.
Three B-52s from Minot arrived yesterday for an exercise. Two went to Fairford, and one diverted to Mildenhall. He left there this morning for
Fairford. There are rumors that more bombers will join them, but nothing official. Two of the B-52s should start flying today, but the one that
diverted, had to divert due to maintenance issues, so probably won't fly until tomorrow.
