The nuclear option: Fleet of B-52s - that carry the country's airborne nuclear deterrent - line the runway before taking off within minutes of each other in show of force

A fleet of B-52 bombers based at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana lined the runway ready for takeoff in a display of air power and American military might.

A group of eight of the Boeing Stratofortress' were pictured on October 14 in what is known as an 'Elephant Walk'.

An elephant walk is a procession of military aircraft taxiing close in formation right before a minimum interval takeoff.
