via U.S. B-1B bombers to fly over Korea in joint exercise

SEOUL, Dec. 6 (Yonhap) — The United States will deploy B-1B Lancer strategic bomber aircraft to Korea on Wednesday as part of a combined air combat training, a defense source said.

The long-range, multi-mission supersonic bombers, based in Guam, plan to conduct bombing drills together with South Korea’s fighter jets.

The source would not specify the number of B-1Bs to come here and the exact schedule of their sortie.

The U.S. usually sends two B-1Bs to the peninsula either in the wake of North Korea’s provocations in a show of force or on routine flight training missions.
