Seoul, December 6: United States flew a B-1B supersonic bomber over South Korea as a part of “show of force” in Korean Peninsula. The country launched joint air excise with South Korea in a response to North Korea’s latest missile launch. It’s a clear indication of US warning to North Korea.
As a reply to North Korean missile threat, South Korea, and the United States kicked off a major air force exercise in Seoul on Monday. This is being called “largest-ever” air exercise. The joint drill, Vigilant Ace will be run for five days. Though it is being seen as the reply to the North Korean missile launch, the exercise was scheduled before it.
The drill is involving more than 230 warplanes and around 12,000 personnel. Six F-22 Raptors and six F-35As have been deployed temporarily to Korea for the practice.
