US Bomber Takes Off From Guam's Andersen Air Force Base

"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely", the president said on Twitter, adding "hopefully Kim Jong-un will find another path!"

A social media post stating a commanding officer briefed military personnel on a North Korea missile attack is false. Residents do not pay US income taxes or vote in the general election for USA president.

Andersen Air Force Base on Guam is where the USA keeps its B1-B bombers deployed to the Asia Pacific.

The naval base dates to 1898, when the USA took over Guam from Spain after the Spanish-American War. The military plans to move thousands of U.S. Marines to Guam from Okinawa in southern Japan. Its chief languages are English and Chamorro. They are both managed under Joint Base Marianas.

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.
