U.S. bombers conduct military drills over Korean peninsula

12 October 2017

In an obvious show of force over the continued missile activities of North Korea, led by Kim Jong Un, the U.S. military has flown two strategic bombers over the Korean peninsula.

"If the North Koreans in fact accessed the US/South Korean defense plans, this is a treasure trove of information and presents a real danger", said CNN military analyst and retired Lt. Col. Rick Francona.

The B-1Bs and the F-15Ks then had another round of a firing exercise over the Yellow Sea.

The drill was the first night combined training among U.S., South Korean and Japanese aircraft, according to the Pentagon.

The bilateral training mission between the U.S. B-1B bombers and South Korean F-15K fighter jets on Tuesday night followed a September 23 mission in which USA bombers and fighter escorts used pre-dawn hours to fly to the farthest point of the border between North and South Korea by any US aircraft this century. The US said Japan's Air Force also took part in the drill. "This is a clear demonstration of our ability to conduct seamless operations with all of our allies anytime, anywhere".

The U.S. Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) said in a statement this was the first nighttime American B-1 bomber drill conducted with the two U.S. allies in the region.

"These B-1 sorties reflect South Korea's demand for more extended deterrence assurances", Pinkston tells VOA. -South Korea vice-ministerial strategic dialogue was last held in June 2014 in Washington.
