Air Force, Navy train in South China Sea

ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam --

Two U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancers assigned to the 9th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron, deployed from Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, fly a 10-hour mission from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, through the South China Sea, operating with the U.S. Navy's Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Sterett (DDG 104), June 8, 2017.

The joint training, organized under Pacific Command's continuous bomber presence program (CBP), allows the Air Force and Navy to increase interoperability by refining joint tactics, techniques and procedures while simultaneously strengthening their ability to seamlessly integrate their operations.
