Deutsche Welle reports that “Television footage on Wednesday showed two supersonic B-1B Lancers flying low over the US Osan Air Base at Pyeongtaek, 64 kilometers (40 miles) south of Seoul.”

“One of the bombers returned to a US base in Guam while the other touched down at Osan which US military officials said was designed to send a message.”

“‘The bond between the United States and the Republic of Korea [South Korea] is ironclad and the strength of that commitment will not be shaken by North Korea’s aggressive behavior,’ said Lieutenant General Thomas W. Bergeson of the US Air Force.”
