USAG HUMPHREYS, Republic of Korea —
A U.S. Air Force B-52H Stratofortress is scheduled to land on the Korean Peninsula during the 2023 Seoul International Aerospace and Defense Exhibition, or Seoul ADEX 23, which is scheduled to run Oct. 17-22.
U.S. support for Seoul ADEX 23 is at an all-time high in recognition of the 70th anniversary of the ironclad commitment to the ROK-U.S. Alliance. Participation in the event allows the U.S. to demonstrate its robust readiness by showcasing capabilities committed to protecting service members and their families, as well as defending allies and partner nations.
The aircraft is scheduled to conduct two flyovers during the international air and tradeshow as part of a larger cross-section of U.S. military aircraft providing static displays, flyovers and aerial demonstrations.
“We are honored and excited to demonstrate our ironclad commitment to the ROK-U.S. Alliance with the participation of the B-52 Stratofortress, and all of our US equipment and personnel in Seoul ADEX 23,” said Maj. Rachel Buitrago, 7th Air Force Public Affairs director. “These flyovers, air demonstrations and static displays, including the landing for the B-52 on the peninsula, is part of our continued pledge to promote peace, stability and prosperity on the Korean peninsula.”
The Stratofortress is a long-range, nuclear and conventional heavy bomber which can perform a variety of missions. The bomber can fly at high, subsonic speeds at altitudes reaching 50,000 feet, with an unrefueled combat range in excess of 8,800 miles and can carry precision-guided ordnance with worldwide precision navigation.
Seoul ADEX 23 offers a venue to further strengthen the U.S. relationship with the ROK and enhance regional security through expanded military-to-military cooperation and with regional partners and allies. Through participation in air shows, U.S. service members can share dialogue and an exchange of ideas with allied and partner nations, strengthening interoperability and mutual understanding.
