Two B-1B strategic bombers of the U.S. Air Force trained with South Korea’s fighter jets over and near the peninsula earlier this week in yet another show of force against North Korea, defense authorities here said Wednesday. The bombers from Guam entered the Korean Air Defense Identification Zone (KADIZ) at around 8:50 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).
They staged a simulated air-to-ground missile-firing drill with two F-15K fighters over the East Sea and flew across the peninsula, it said.
