US Air Force conducts massive surprise exercise in warning to North Korea

A Japan-based combat-ready Air Force wing showed off its aircraft Wednesday in a clear warning to North Korea.

Fox News reported the 18th Wing conducted a surprise military exercise at Kadena Air Base in Japan as North Korea is rumored to be nearing a sixth nuclear weapons test.

A group of HH-60 Pave Hawks, F-15 Eagles, E-3 Sentries and KC-135 Stratotankers all took part in the exercise, the report said. Photos from the no-notice event showed jets lined up down the entirety of a runway on the base.
