Multiple U.S. military aircraft practiced bombing North Korea’s core facilities Thursday in a joint drill with America’s allies in Northeast Asia.

Two Air Force B-1B Lancers from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam and four F-35Bs from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni in Japan trained alongside Japanese Koku Jieitai (Japanese Self-Defense Force) F-15J fighters and Republic of Korea Air Force F-15Ks Thursday in a show of force to North Korea, according to U.S. Pacific Command.


The American bombers and fighters practiced unleashing “fire and fury” on North Korea in direct response to its recent missile test, which involved firing a missile over Japan in an unprecedented display of aggression.

Earlier this month, President Donald Trump warned that North Korea’s provocative threats will be met with “fire and fury” unlike anything the world has ever seen. U.S. Pacific Command released a collection of impressive photos showing a portion of the power of the conventional forces of the U.S. military.

When the president announced a few weeks ago that the U.S. military is “locked and loaded” for a military solution to the North Korea problem, U.S. Pacific Command responded, “[U.S. Air Force] B-1B Lancer bombers on Guam stand ready to fulfill [U.S. Forces Korea’s] ‘fight tonight’ mission if called upon to do so.”
