MINOT, North Dakota — More than 300 airmen and six B-52 bombers from the Minot Air Force Base have returned from a six-month deployment in Guam.

KXMC-TV reports the airmen returned to the North Dakota base on Wednesday, after a 6,000-mile journey.

The airmen and the bombers were temporarily reassigned to the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam while runway work was being done at the Minot base.

Several B-52s from the base also were temporarily reassigned to Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota during the runway reconstruction that is slated to be completed by the end of the month.
