Report: U.S. Air Force drills targeted North Korea

U.S. Air Force exercise for a possible "raid" on the North Korean leadership
A U.S. Air Force exercise for a possible "raid" on the North Korean leadership may have been conducted in southwest Missouri.

The drills included the deployment of B-2 and B-52 bombers, E-3 Sentry Airborne Early Warning aircraft supported by KC-10 and KC-135 tankers simulating airstrikes "all over Missouri," The Aviationist reported Tuesday.

The drills were likely conducted to deter North Korea, according to listeners "in the area" who heard unencrypted communication over military air band.

U.S. military personnel "didn't employ any encryption [so] that I could hear...the whole exercise was broadcast for the world to hear in plain old analog UHF AM," one Aviationist reader wrote.

"The most interesting part was when they radioed 'a command post possible [North Korea] leadership relocation site' but when this was said I had not started recording it yet," the reader added.

The radio communications took place on Oct. 17, according to the reader, when he and his wife were "sitting outside by a fire enjoying the evening."
