U.S. strategic bombers, ROK and U.S. fighters conduct combined aerial training

PA-001-23 | April 14, 2023

U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys, Republic of Korea —

The Republic of Korea Air Force and the United States Air Force conducted a combined aerial training event with U.S. Air Force B-52H Stratofortresses over the Korean Peninsula today.

The ROK-U.S. combined aerial training event consisted of ROK Air Force F-35’s and U.S. Air Force F-16’s escorting the U.S. B-52 strategic bombers as they entered the Korean Air Defense Identification Zone to conduct a combined flight operation.

The training offered the alliance its latest opportunity to further strengthen its interoperability by demonstrating a combined defense capability and providing extended deterrence in the defense of the Korean Peninsula.

The U.S. remains committed to peace and prosperity throughout the region to secure a free and open Indo-Pacific, and our commitment to the defense of the Republic of Korea remains ironclad.
