US President Donald Trump and his top national security advisers said there were military options available for dealing with the North Korea crisis which were both "effective and overwhelming", the media reported.
Trump, joined by first lady Melania Trump, met with military families and watched an air show at the base that houses the presidential plane Air Force One.
Addressing several hundred air force personnel after reviewing some of America's most high-tech fighters jets and bombers, Trump warned that Pyongyang had "once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbours and for the entire world community". "They're better looking than Tom Cruise and we know they can fight better and we know they can fly better", he said, referring to Cruise's 1986 film "Top Gun".
Trump said his administration is working to reverse shrinkage in the size of the Air Force that has persisted since the early 1990s, despite the military having been continuously engaged since that time.
"What we are seeing is they continue to be provocative, they continue to be reckless".

Another video was widely circulated that showed President Trump whisper something to Melania and she made another facial expression. "We will be there tomorrow and the day after, as we work to respond, recover, and rebuild".
Trump's remarks came after North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido earlier on Friday, the latest in a stream of missile tests that have looked to defy the worldwide community.
