Two US bombers fly near Korean peninsula

Two US bombers fly near Korean peninsula”

US B-1 bombers flying from Guam have been seen regularly over the Korean Peninsula amid escalating tensions with Pyongyang - running regular training flights with Japanese and South Korean fighter jets that often provoke the ire of the North Korean regime.

United States B-1B Lancer bombers flew near the Korean Peninsula on Thursday night ahead of U.S. President Donald Trump's Asia trip next week.

The statement noted that the exercise was part of the "continuous bomber presence" mission in the Pacific and was planned in advance.

"The reality clearly shows that the gangster-like USA imperialists are the very one who is aggravating the situation of the Korean peninsula and seeking to ignite a nuclear war", KCNA said.

There was no immediate confirmation from the US and South Korean militaries.

The Air Force, in tangent with Japan Air Self-Defense Force fighters and the Republic of Korea Air Force, conducted a planned, bilateral mission in the area, according to a statement from the Pacific Air Force.

US Air Force spokeswoman Captain Victoria Hight described the drill as taking place over the Pilsung Range, offering additional details about the drill.

Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have carried on a war of words via public statements since Trump took office in January. In 2013, B-2 bombers flying from Missouri participated in exercises over South Korea. Including the deployment of USS Ronald Reagan, a 100,000-ton nuclear powered aircraft carrier.
