The so-called "Max Thunder" exercise, which is held twice a year, will last until April 25th and involve 103 aircraft and 1,400 service personnel.

The last Max Thunder drill held in October-November last year involved 97 aircraft and some 1,000 troops.

Seoul's F-15K jet fighters will take part along with US Air Force F-15 and F-16s and US Marines' FA-18 and EA-18 aircraft.
