Mammoth 274-mm railroad gun Captured in the U.S. Seventh Army advance near Rentwertshausen easily holds these 22 men lined up on the barrel. Although of an 1887 French design, the gun packs a powerful wallop. April 10, 1945. T5c. Pat. W. Kohl. (Army)

Two F-22 Raptors and one B-2 Spirit deployed to Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, from the 90th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron and the 13th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron recently flew in formation over Andersen. The F-22 Raptor and B-2 Spirit deployment to Andersen marks the first time, F-22 Raptors and B-2 Spirits, the key strategic stealth platforms in the Air Force inventory, deployed together outside the continental United States. As part of the continuing force posture adjustments to address worldwide requirements, the United States continues to deploy additional forces like
the F-22 and B-2 throughout the Western Pacific. This is the latest example
of the flexibility U.S. forces have to meet their ongoing commitments and
security obligations throughout the Pacific region.
