    KUNSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- Four U.S. Marine Corps F-35B Lightning II aircraft with the Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 242 landed at Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea for the Vigilant Storm 23 training event, Oct. 31, 2022. As a part of the Pacific Air Forces command’s annual combined and joint fighter training event, the fifth-generation aircraft shared Korean air space with aircraft and personnel from the 8th Fighter Wing, ROK Air Force's 38th Fighter Group and multiple other units from across the Indo-Pacific Command.

    Vigilant Storm 23 was designed to practice wartime missions, roles and tasks in effort to enhance the combat readiness and survivability of U.S. and ROK forces. Training events such as this, strengthen the ROK-U.S. Alliance and ensure forces maintain the high state of military readiness necessary for the peace, stability and prosperity of the Korean peninsula.
