US regulator 2 B-1B aircraft train with warships in the SOUTH CHINA SEA


Two US strategic B1-B bombers on Day 8 made
a 10-hour flight from Andersen, Guam Island, to the South China Sea to drill with the USS
Sterett guided-missile destroyer. According to the Aviationist website, the
exercise aims to improve interoperability and coordination between the two forces through
improved tactics, techniques and operational procedures. The US military did not specify
the exact site of the exercise in the South China Sea. These B-1B Lancer aircraft belonged to the
No. 9 Expeditionary Force Squadron, based at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, deployed on
Guam Island from August 2016, for the first time in a decade. The B1-B replaces the B-52s
at Andersen Airbase to the Pacific Command Airborne Presence (CBP) Presence Program (PACOM). The supersonic bomber is one of three US Air
Force bombers, alongside the B-2 and B-52. According to The Aviationist, the deployment
of B-1B Lancer to Guam Island could help US troops in deterring North Korea. In addition,
the B-1B is involved in many other regional missions, including training in the vicinity
of Australia.
