Hurricane Laura Evacuation 2020

I would like to start our series of Hurricane Evacuation of our military jets and for the year 2020 , we have multiple evacs that is hitting the Gulf of Mexico. Hurricane Laura hit the gulf coast between Louisiana and Texas border and came inland towards Shreveport LA and thus hitting our global Strike B-52 Barkesdale AFB on the 27th August 2020.

NAS Ft worth JRB ( Joint Reserve Base ) use to be Careswell AFB which houses Strategic Air Command B-52 force host about 8 B-52 during the hurricane evacuation. The rest of the B-52 from Barkedale was evcuated to Minot AFB.

Here are some of the actions on the 28th August 2020 when the BUFF was heading back to Louisiana.
