RAAF Base Darwin will host United States Air Force (USAF) Aircraft for several weeks in order to conduct exercises with the the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) as part of the Enhanced Air Cooperation initiative.

Up to two B-52 Stratofortress Bombers will arrive this week to participate in training exercise serials.
