    HAGATNA, Guam – All seven crew members made it out safely as their B-52 crashed on Guam shortly after takeoff, the U.S. Air Force said. No injuries were reported.

    The plane aborted on takeoff and caught fire at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday Guam time, Pacific Air Forces public affairs said in an email. It crashed on the flight line of the base.

    The bomber was deployed to Guam from Minot, North Dakota, as part of the military's continuous bomber presence in the Pacific, The Air Force said. The crew members are with the 69th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron and were performing a routine training mission, it said.

    A message left with the Minot base public affairs office seeking further comment was not immediately returned.
