On Monday three U.S. Air Force nuclear-capable bomber wings joined the new Air Force Global Strike Command, bringing together the USAF’s nuclear strike assets in a single organization for the first time since the dismantling of Strategic Air Command in 1992. The ICBM force joined the new command on December 1 and have now been followed by the 20 Northrop Grumman B-2s and 76 remaining Boeing B-52Hs stationed at Barksdale AFB, Louisiana (2nd Bomb Wing); Minot AFB, North Dakota (5th BW); and Whiteman AFB, Missouri (509th BW).
