American B-52 Bombers Make Low Sweep Over Stockholm


American B-52 bombers flew low over Stockholm’s parliament and palace on Friday as Sweden ramps up exercises with the United States in view of the Scandinavian country’s NATO membership.war

The two US Air Force planes were escorted by JAS Gripen fighters as they overflew the capital around 12:15 pm (1015 GMT), Sweden’s military said.

While the US bombers have taken part in exercises in Sweden before, it was the first time they have flown over the capital, a military spokeswoman, Therese Fagerstedt, told AFP.

“It’s the kind of exercise that is even more meaningful now,” she said.

Sweden and Finland applied to join the Atlantic alliance in May following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The US and other Western powers have since intensified military exercises and shows of military might across the region.
