Pyongyang, March 15 (KCNA) -- Warplanes of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces and the south Korean forces have become more frantic in their aerial war exercises against the DPRK since they announced the plan for RSOI and Foal Eagle joint military exercises, according to a military source.
On March 13 and 14, dozens of U.S. mainland-based F-117 Stealth fighter-bombers flew in the sky above the areas of North and South Jolla, Kyonggi and south Korean Kangwon provinces and areas on the west coast for navigation drills and exercises for striking ground targets, being refueled by KC-135 in-flight.
On March 7 and 8 warplanes of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces were busy with exercises for intercepting aerial targets, air battle exercise and drills for providing close air support and striking ground targets.
Involved in the war exercises were different flying corps including overseas-based F-117, F/A-18, EA-6B and KC-135 and F-16 fighter-bombers, A-10 assault planes and other warplanes belonging to the U.S. 7th air force in south Korea, at least 250 in all.
Meanwhile, Japan-based fighter-bombers and pursuit-assault planes flew into the air over their operational theatres in pairs or formations and staged madcap exercises of bombing the designated targets and flying back to their bases nonstop.
On March 9 at least 500 different type warplanes of the south Korean forces flew in the skies above the frontline areas and areas of North and South Chungchong and Kyonggi provinces and the West Sea of Korea and staged madcap air battle drills, exercises for providing close air support and striking ground targets in formations in coordinated operation with warplanes of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces.
