U.S. flew Constant Phoenix over East Sea: Aircraft Spots Updated: 2020-01-22 16:02:30 KST

The U.S. flew a plane over Korea's East Sea Tuesday morning to collect air samples and check them for radiation, apparently to monitor the North more closely for any nuclear activity.
This is according to the aviation tracking Twitter account Aircraft Spots.
It said the plane was a type of special-purpose aircraft known as the Constant Phoenix, which had arrived last week at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan.
A South Korean military source said the Constant Phoenix is one of only two types of planes, along with the Cobra Ball surveillance aircraft, whose flights and operation plans the U.S. does not disclose to South Korea even if they're flown over Korean airspace.
