U.S. Air Force's nuclear-capable bomber trio B-1B Lancer, B-2 Spirit, and B-52 Stratofortress launch from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, for an integrated bomber operation. This unprecedented show of military power marks the first time in history that all three of Air Force Global Strike Command's strategic bomber aircraft are simultaneously conducting integrated operations in the U.S. Pacific Command area of operations (AOR).Though all the aircraft have deployed independently to the U.S. Pacific Command’s AOR in the past, this is the first time all three bombers flew a formation pass over Andersen Air Force Base, dispersed and then simultaneously conducted operations in the South China Sea and Northeast Asia.

    That is a good thing to counter the North Korean threat, and as a defensive posture for the U.S. Military. However, I feel that that there is an urgent need for Sea and Anti-aircraft Missile Batteries, and keeping the THAAD on Guam permanently.
