Supersonic B-1B Lancer bombers flew over the Korean Peninsula today in a show of force


​In response to North Korea’s testing of an ICBM on Friday, a pair of supersonic B-1B Lancer bombers (joined by Japanese and South Korean fighter jets) flew over the Korean Peninsula today in a show of force.

 


The US Pacific Air Forces said that the bilateral mission, lasting just under 10 hours, was in “direct response to Pyongyang’s latest missile test.” The US bombers took off from a USAF base in Guam, and were soon joined by the Japanese and South Korean Air Force. 

“North Korea remains the most urgent threat to regional stability,” Pacific Air Forces Commander General Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy said. “If called upon, we are ready to respond with rapid, lethal, and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing.”
