The six U.S. Air Force B-52s that deployed from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota to the Royal Air Force base at Fairford back in August have set another intelligence trap for Russian forces in the Black Sea region—possibly their biggest yet.

On Wednesday, one of the eight-engine bombers—call sign “Hero 31”—winged over the Black Sea near the Ukrainian and Romanian coasts, briefly joining up with Ukrainian air force MiG-29 and Su-27 fighters.

The bomber reportedly made a mock attack run on the Ukrainian city of Odessa before turning toward Romania. “Our team from @TeamMinot has been busy!” U.S. Strategic Command tweeted on Wednesday.
