Aircraft from the U.S. Pacific Air Forces, South Korea and Japan performed sequenced bilateral missions Monday, the Pacific Air Forces said.

Two U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancers assigned to the 37th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron, deployed from Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota, prepare to take off from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, for a 10-hour mission, flying in the vicinity of Kyushu, Japan, the East China Sea, and the Korean peninsula, August 7, 2017 (HST). It has two 2-mile (3-kilometer) long runways and large fuel and munitions storage facilities. "The B-1 is a long-range bomber that is well-suited for the maritime domain and can meet the unique challenges of the Pacific".

After taking off from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, the B-1s - assigned to the 37th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron - flew to Japanese airspace, where they were joined by Japanese F-2 fighter jets.

The United States has maintained a regular bomber presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region since 2004. In 2013, the Army sent a missile defense system to Guam called Terminal High Altitude Area Defense or THAAD. A THAAD battery includes a truck-mounted launcher, tracking radar, interceptor missiles and an integrated fire control system.
