Bombers deployed to Guam flew the mission to demonstrate the Air Force’s ability to operate anywhere international law allows, “at the time and tempo of our choosing,” Pacific Air Forces said via Twitter on Wednesday.

The Lancers, originally from the 9th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, was at least the second pair to turn up in the area in less than a month. The Air Force does not publicize all of its B-1B flights.

On April 29, two Lancers appeared over the South China Sea during a 32-hour round trip from Ellsworth Air Force Base, That flight demonstrated the new “dynamic force employment model” aimed at making its global bomber presence less predictable, the Air Force said at the time.

The squadron from Dyess arrived on Guam May 1 with four B-1B bombers and about 200 airmen to train and conduct operations with allies and partners, the Air Force said at the time.
