原文:

After ending its 16-year permanent bomber presence in Guam, the U.S. Air Force this week flew a B-1B Lancer to the Pacific as part of its new unpredictable deployment experiment to test crews' agility when sending heavy aircraft forces around the world.

The B-1B, from the 28th Bomb Wing at Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota, flew a 30-hour round-trip flight to Japan. There, it operated alongside six U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcons, seven Japan Air Self Defense Force F-2 and eight JASDF F-15 over Draughon Range near Misawa.

This operation showcases USAF unwavering commitment to the security and stability of the Indo-Pacific region through the employment of strategic forces from around the globe.

中譯:

美國空軍在結束B-1B「槍騎兵」戰略轟炸機16年來長駐關島的任務之後,本週派遣1架B-1B轟炸機飛往太平洋,進行該機創新不設限的部署實驗,以測試機組員的靈活度,期將重型飛機武力派遣到世界各地。

這架駐於南達科他州艾爾斯渥斯空軍基地,隸屬第28轟炸機聯隊的B-1B轟炸機,向日本進行來回30小時的飛行。該機與6架F-16「獵鷹」戰機、日本空中自衛隊7架F-2及8架F-15,在日本三澤附近的「德勞恩靶場」進行操演。

該操演藉由運用全球戰略武力,展現美國空軍對印太地區安全與穩定的堅定承諾。
