Just read an article that mentioned the US had a plan back in the 1980's that would destroy the NK air force in 100 hrs. They now state that it could happen even more quickly now. How would the US go about doing this?

Here's the article: ... ea-launch/

Its about 1/2 - 2/3 of the way down.

I'm sure the real meet of this topic is classified. We (the public) doesn't know how much US intelligence agencies know about the NK tunnel network, nor how much of the bunkered airfields could be taken out from the air.
