South Korea news outlet Chosun reported recently that the USA has been considering using this armada to test North Korea like never before, by sailing the aircraft carrier north of the Northern Limit Line, the de facto maritime border of North Korea.

Flight 666 will fly 15 more times overall until October 29 when the number will change to AY954 - altogether much less spooky. However, today will be the last time Flight 666 flies to Hel, as the airline has made a decision to retire the flight number.

The USS Ronald Reagan, the US's forward-deployed aircraft carrier based in Japan, also should head to South Korea in the coming days, according to Yonhap. The US Navy said in a statement that the drill is created to promote "communications, interoperability, and partnership" between the two militaries.

The Ohio-class submarine USS Michigan (SSGN-727) arrived at Busan, South Korea's southeastern port city, earlier in the day.

The U.S. Navy said the submarine is capable of "supporting Special Operation Forces (SOF) missions" and providing "unprecedented strike and special operation mission capabilities from a stealthy, clandestine platform". The super-carrier is accompanied by Aegis destroyers, guided missile cruisers, combat support ships and a nuclear-powered submarine.

It replaced another U.S. submarine, the Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS Tucson (SSN 770) that had stayed in Jinhae, a city in South Korea's southeastern region, on October 7-11.
