SEOUL — The US has flown B-1B Lancer strategic bomber and F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jets over South Korea skies accompanied by South Korean military aircraft as a part of a massive combined aerial exercise involving hundreds of warplanes, Yonhap News Agency says.

The maneuvers are part of the unprecedented joint air force Vigilant Ace 18 drills that kicked off Monday.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said Wednesday the Guam-based bomber simulated land strikes at a military field near South Korea’s eastern coast during a drill with US and South Korean fighter jets.

The drills staged by the US and South Korea feature hundreds of warplanes conducting mock attacks on North Korean nuclear and missile objects in different war scenarios, but are claimed to be of a “defensive nature.”

Flyovers of B-1Bs have become an increasingly familiar show of force to North Korea, which after three ICBM tests has clearly moved closer toward building a nuclear arsenal that could viably target the US mainland.
