Assurance and Deterrence
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Matthew Helms, left, and Staff Sgt. Joshua Layton, both dedicated crew chiefs assigned to the 509th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, salute pilots of a B-2 Spirit aircraft as they begin to taxi onto the runway Aug. 22, 2016 at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. Thanks to its subsonic speeds and it’s nearly 7,000 mile un-refueled range, the B-2 Spirit is capable of bringing massive firepower, in a short time, anywhere on the globe through the most challenging defenses.
