F-22 Stealth Bombers of the US fly low over South Korea skies

Ignoring repeated warnings by regional powers, North Korea went ahead with the launch of its long-range rocket which is said to be carrying an Earth observation satellite. However, Washington, Seoul and others treat this as a prohibited test of missile technology.
Therefore, four U.S. F-22 stealth fighters flew low over South Korea in a clear show of force against North Korea. This was the day after South Korea's president had warned of the North's collapse and subsequent standoff over its nuclear and missile ambitions.
This has been reported in dated 17 February 2016.
The high-tech F-22 Raptor planes are capable of sneaking past radar undetected and were seen landing at Osan Air Base near Seoul. The F-22s were escorted by other U.S. and South Korean fighter jets. North Korea could interpret the arrival of the planes flown from a U.S. base in Japan as a threat. This is because it was an apparent display of U.S. air power to show what the United States can do in order to defend its ally South Korea from potential aggression from North Korea.
Incidentally, the F-22 `Raptor' is the most capable air superiority fighter in the world, and is representative of one of many capabilities available for the defense of South Korea. It shows the ironclad commitment of the US to the defense of South Korea. The U.S. military has not disclosed how long the F-22s will be deployed in South Korea.
