JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii --

U.S. Air Force B-1B bombers conducted interoperability training with three U.S. Navy carriers in the Western Pacific, Nov. 11.

"Our ability to integrate with our joint partners is critical to ensuring continued security and stability in the region," said Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, Pacific Air Forces commander. "Together we present an extraordinary military force. We are grateful for this unique opportunity to enhance our interoperability across platforms and services while also demonstrating our commitment to our allies, partners and friends throughout the Indo-Asia-Pacific."

The B- 1B Lancers took off from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, transited to the Western Pacific and performed a flyover of the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), USS Nimitz (CVN 68), and USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) Carrier Strike Groups. Upon completion of the joint integration mission, the aircraft returned to their home stations.

The bombers were operating as part of the U.S. Pacific Command’s continuous bomber presence missions, which have been routinely employed since March 2004 and are in accordance with international law.
