U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancers integrate with JASDF for training mission

ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam -- Two U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancers assigned to 37th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron, deployed from Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota, fly alongside two Koku Jieitai (Japan Air Self-Defense Force) F-15s over the vicinity of the East China Sea, Sept. 9, 2017. Following the end of the operation, one B-1B flew to Misawa Air Base, Japan, to be a static display for the Misawa Air Festival, while the other B-1B returned to Andersen AFB, Guam. The integration of our aerial platforms with our allied nations advance and strengthen the long-standing military-to-military relationships in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. (Courtesy Photo)
