New York, Jan 10 (ANI): In a response to North Korea’s nuclear test last week, the United States has flown a B-52 long range bomber to South Korea to carry out a low level flight over a US military base, 30 miles south of Seoul.
The U.S. conducted a similar flight in 2013 about a month after North Korea’s last nuclear test.
U.S. Pacific Command said in a statement that a U.S. B-52 bomber from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, conducted a low-level flight in the vicinity of Osan, South Korea, in response to a recent nuclear test by North Korea.
After the mission was completed, the bomber returned to its base in Guam.
General Curtis M. Scaparrotti, United Nations Command, Combined Forces Command, U.S. Forces Korea commander, said that the flight today demonstrates the strength and capabilities of the Alliance. (ANI)
