The Republic of Korea Air Force and the United States Air Force conducted a combined air training event with the deployment of the U.S. Air Force B-52H Stratofortress over the Korean Peninsula on July 13, 2023.
ROK Air Force F-15’s and U.S. Air Force F-16’s escorted the U.S. B-52 strategic bomber as it entered the Korean Air Defense Identification Zone and conducted combined flight operations.
The training offered the alliance an opportunity to improve interoperability between the ROK and U.S 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 through the region to secure a free and open Indo-Pacific, and its ironclad commitment to the defense of the Republic of Korea.
