barksdale b52's practice surge + 'operation green flag'from shreveport times: People who live near or around Barksdale Air Force Base may notice an increase in noise Thursday and Monday, installation representatives say. Early Thursday, a dozen B-52 bombers will practice for a “surge,” where bombers take off in quick succession. The real MITO, or “minimum-interval takeoff,” will be held at the base early Monday. This is in addition to increased noise and activity associated with “Green Flag” exercises involving German fighter jets that have occurred over the past few weeks.
