The North continued to describe the B-1B a "nuclear strategic bomber" although the plane was switched to conventional weaponry in the mid-1990s.
The drills follow reports last week that North Korea had successfully conducted another ballistic missile launch across Japan as the country continues to pursue its nuclear ambitions, as it continues to threaten both the USA and South Korea with wholesale nuclear destruction.
North Korea has condemned the drills, threatening to take action against the USA and its regional allies.

North Korea said that further escalation through joint drills "will only invite more awful retaliation and precipitate their self-destruction".
