SOME COOL PHOTOS OF USAF B-1B LANCER BOMBERS TRAINING WITH JASDF F-15 EAGLE FIGHTERS

USAF B-1B Lancer bombers often conduct bilateral training missions with Republic of Korea and Japanese air forces in response to North Korea’s ballistic missile and nuclear programs

Taken on Sep. 9, 2017 the cool photos in this post show two U.S. Air Force (USAF) B-1B Lancer bombers assigned to 37th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron (EBS), deployed from Ellsworth Air Force Base (AFB), South Dakota, flying alongside two Koku Jieitai (Japan Air Self-Defense Force, JASDF) F-15s over the vicinity of the East China.

Following the end of the operation, one B-1B flew to Misawa Air Base, Japan, to be a static display for the Misawa Air Festival, while the other B-1B returned to Andersen AFB, Guam. This kind of exercise is aimed to strength the long-standing military-to-military relationships in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

Noteworthy USAF B-1Bs often conduct bilateral training missions with Republic of Korea and Japanese air forces in response to North Korea’s ballistic missile and nuclear programs and as a part of the continuing demonstration of ironclad U.S. commitment to its allies.

“North Korea remains the most urgent threat to regional stability,” said Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, PACAF commander, on Jul. 29, 2017. “Diplomacy remains the lead; however, we have a responsibility to our allies and our nation to showcase our unwavering commitment while planning for the worst-case scenario. If called upon, we are ready to respond with rapid, lethal, and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing.”

As we have previously explained 37th EBS B-1B Lancers are currently deployed at Andersen AFB in support of USPACOM’s Continuous Bomber Presence (CBP) mission.
