From Update Philippines (Jun 10): LOOK: US bombers operate in South China Sea
United States Navy and Air Force have conducted an interoperability drill in South China Sea on June 8.
The activity included two Air Force Global Strike Command B-1B Lancers assigned to 9th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron and Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Sterett (DDG 104).
The bombers flew a 10-hour mission from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, through the South China Sea.
“The joint training, organized under Pacific Command’s continuous bomber presence program (CBP), allows the Air Force and Navy to increase interoperability by refining joint tactics, techniques and procedures while simultaneously strengthening their ability to seamlessly integrate their operations,” US Pacific Air Forces said.
