This handout taken and released by the South Korean Defence Ministry in Seoul on December 6, 2017 shows a US Air Force B-1B Lancer bomber, two US F-35A and two US F-35B stealth jets flying over South Korea with South Korea's two F-16 and two F-15K fighter jets during a joint military drill.

The aircraft entered the Korean Air Defense Identification Zone (KADIZ) over the waters south of Jeju Island and conducted simulated bombing drills over the Yellow Sea near North Korea and China, according to the official, cited by Yonhap.

The five-day exercise is the largest ever combined air force drill between the two allies, involving 230 warplanes and around twelve-thousand personnel.

The high-altitude, supersonic bombers were joined by U.S. F-22 and F-35 stealth fighter jets to conduct simulated strikes at a military field in Gangwon Province, Korea Economic Daily reported.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday expressed concerns over the continued deployment of USA strategic assets.
