For the second time this month, Polish F-16 pilots have escorted the flight of a US B-1B bomber over Poland, Defence Minister Mariusz Blaszczak has written on Twitter.

The US Air Force regularly deploys bomber aircraft in Europe, whose crews train allies and partners. The B-1B is a variable swept-wing, long-range strategic bomber aircraft.

"The strategic bomber missions once again confirm a readiness to react to any potential crises in our region," wrote Blaszczak.
