YONGSAN GARRISON, South Korea — As part of a high-tech commitment to enhancing military capabilities in the region, a squadron of F-117 Nighthawks — more commonly known as stealth fighter-bombers — has been deployed temporarily to South Korea, U.S. officials said Tuesday.
The squadron, from the 49th Fighter Wing at Holloman Air Force Base, N.M., arrives this week at Kunsan Air Base in central South Korea.
“In coordination with the Republic of Korea government, U.S. Pacific Command and U.S. Forces Korea have identified certain forces to deploy to the ROK from June to September 2004,” said Air Force Lt. Col. Deborah Bertrand, a USFK spokeswoman.
