The South Korean Air Force flew fighter jets and other planes near Takeshima, a group of disputed islets off Shimane Prefecture, on Tuesday as part of a ceremony marking South Korea’s Armed Forces Day.

The air force conducted a demonstration of an airspace defense mission, dispatching the planes from its Daegu Air Base to the southwest of the islands, which are claimed by both Japan and South Korea. The ceremony was held at the base, located in the southern region of the country.
