U.S. B-1B bomber flights demonstrate ironclad commitment to South Korea, Japan

U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancers assigned to the 9th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron, deployed from Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, fly with South Korean F-15 and U.S. Air Force F-16 fighter jets over the Korean Peninsula, July 7. The Lancers departed Andersen Air Force Base, Guam to conduct a sequenced bilateral mission with South Korean F-15s and Koku Jieitai (Japan Air Self-Defense Force) F-2 fighter jets. The air forces successfully integrated and flew with one another despite inclement weather, demonstrating their ability to adapt to and overcome the elements. The mission is in response to a series of increasingly escalatory action by North Korea, including a launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on July 3.
