US Navy Super Hornets Escort Air Force Bombers

US Air Force B-52 'Stratofortress' bombers dispatched from Barksdale airbase near Shreveport, LA, flew a transcontinental sortie on an airstrike mission against Russian forces advancing on the Ukranian capital city of Kiev.  They were met and escorted by F/A-18 Super Hornets of the VFA-41 squadron launched from the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, currently operating in the Black Sea in support of Operation Trident Breach.  Several Russian fighter jets were shot down by the Super Hornets, allowing the B-52s to deliver their bombs and return safely.
