ADEX: USAF sends message to Pyongyang at Seoul show

17 October, 2017
BY: Greg Waldron Seoul

The United States Air Force has made an impressive show of force that this year's Seoul ADEX defence show, bringing four stealth fighters and several other aircraft. The stars of the USAF contingent at the show are two Lockheed Martin F-22s and two F-35As. All four aircraft appeared on static, with the F-22 also performing a high-G aerial display.

The two F-35As were sent from Hill Air Force Base, where the 4th Fighter Squadron (the "Fighten' Fuujins") is based.
This marks the F-35's debut at Seoul ADEX. South Korea has orders for 40 F-35As. The F-22s were sent from the USAF's 3rd Wing, which is based at Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska.

Other USAF assets on display included a Boeing E-3 Sentry, C-17, and C-130J. The US Navy's contribution to the show is a P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine warfare jet. The strong US presence coincides with heightened tensions on the Korean peninsula following North Korean nuclear and missile tests.
