The USAF deployed B-2 Bombers and F-22 fighters to Guam on 27/02/09. This is the first time the two types of aircraft operate together. The pairing of advanced B-2 bombers and F-22 fighters in the region follows what the United States and its allies suspect are preparations by North Korea to test fire a long-range Taepodong-2 missile capable of striking U.S. soil. North Korea said on Tuesday it planned to launch a satellite on a rocket as a part of a peaceful space program. The F-22s were brought from Elmendorf Air Force Base in Alaska to take advantage of better winter flying weather in Guam. Guam is a U.S. oversea territory about 3,400 miles southwest of Hawaii
