The Republic of Korea and the United States kicked off their largest joint air drill on Friday at a time of elevated military tensions with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

The so-called "Max Thunder" exercise, which is held twice a year, will last until April 25 and involve 103 aircraft and 1,400 service personnel, an ROK air force spokesman said.

"In numerical terms, it's the largest exercise of its kind that we've done," the spokesman said.
