Three U.S. reconnaissance aircraft flew over the Korean Peninsula in succession for two days this week in an apparent sign of ramped-up surveillance of North Korea following its test-firing of coastal artillery.

A plane believed to be an EP-3E of the U.S. Navy, was spotted in skies above the Korean Peninsula at an altitude of 7,010 meters, Aircraft Spots, an aviation tracker, said on its Twitter account.

The aviation tracker said earlier it detected two U.S. Air Force spy planes -- the RC-135V and the E-8C -- flying over the region Wednesday and early Thursday, respectively. The RC-135V flew at an altitude of 9,753 meters, and the E-8C was at 9,448 meters.

Japan's Defense Ministry said "what appears to be a ballistic missile" fired by the North did not reach the country's territory. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said in a televised news conference that no projectiles had entered Japan's airspace or "exclusive economic zone" at sea. The Japanese defense ministry said it would continue to analyze information as it became available "in order to protect the lives and assets of the people."

North Korea has reduced the interval between KN-25 rocket fires steadily since the first test in August, from ~20 minutes in the first two tests, to 3 minutes on October 31 and now to 30 seconds. The faster it fires, the quicker it can out of dodge before counter-fire arrives. https://t.co/99NJAWuzPx

I sure don't like hearing that they're making advances like that. I wonder how long it will be before NK is a small nuclear power/threat to the point where they could easily attack anywhere in the world.

They have already achieved that regionally. They can easily hit Japan, South Korea, and Guam with land-based missiles they already have deployed, and their KN-26 SLBM is now considered operational as well. They have three ICBMs which can reach CONUS, although they are still not fully operational yet. It won't be long before they are a global threat.

North Korea's state media on Saturday lashed out at Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as an "imbecile and political dwarf" for calling Pyongyang's latest test of a large multiple-rocket launcher a ballistic missile launch and warned he may see a real one in the near future.


"Abe may see what a real ballistic missile is in the not distant future and under his nose ... Abe is none other than a perfect imbecile and a political dwarf without parallel in the worl
