On a training run with a B-52 bomber

Jonathan Beale takes to the skies in a US B-52 bomber on a training run, as a number of long range heavy bombers are moved to Europe for the first time in 10 years.

The United States has sent some of its long range heavy bombers to Europe for the first time in 10 years.

It is a sign of increasing US and NATO military activity since Russia's intervention in Ukraine. President Obama has also asked congress for $1bn (£594m) to increase training and exercises in Eastern Europe.

As part of the plans, B-52 bombers will be based at Fairford in Gloucestershire for the coming month.

Defence correspondent Jonathan Beale had exclusive access to one as it conducted a simulated bombing run.
