Air Force preparing B-52 bombers for 24-hour alert status, official says

Air Force preparing B-52 bombers for 24-hour alert status, official says | 22 Oct 2017 | The U.S. Air Force is preparing to place its fleet of nuclear-armed B-52 bombers on 24-hour alert for the first time since 1991 amid escalating tensions with North Korea, the military branch's chief of staff said in a report Sunday. Defense officials denied to Fox News that bombers were ordered to go on 24-hour alert, but Gen. David Goldfein told Defense One it could happen. Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana, home of the 2d Bomb Wing and Air Force Global Strike Command, which [mis]manages the service's nuclear services, is being renovated, Defense One reported, so that B-52s would be ready to "take off at a moment’s notice."
