Michael Margino, avionics technician with the 36th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, at RAAF Base Darwin, Australia, March 29, 2018. Two B-52 Stratofortress aircraft flew to Darwin to partake in the Enhanced Air Cooperation exercises with RAAF aircraft and ground personnel. The rotations enhance U.S. ability to train, exercise and operate with Australia and other allies and partners across the region, further enabling international militaries to respond more quickly to a wide range of challenges, including humanitarian crises and disaster relief, as well as promoting security cooperation efforts across the region.
