The U.S. Air Force is sending a Cold War icon into the fight against ISIS.

B-52 Stratofortresses from Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana arrived at an air base in Qatar on Saturday for use against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, the Air Force said in a statement.
The service did not say how many of the eight-engine, 180,000-pound B-52s were in Qatar, but their deployment was not a surprise.
