Allied Offensive is canceled. All units are placed back at their starting locations. The Japanese player may reduce one full strength Allied CA or DD naval unit (Japanese player choice) that was activated for the canceled Offensive. This can only reduce, not eliminate, the naval unit. If none of the specified naval units are available, there is no additional effect. Draw one Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

You are right, LRB cannot nullify ZOI of japanese air unit.
25 5/25/2020 2:10:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Good morning, Didier.
The supply of Menado can follow two ways: one maritime, but it is blocked by the EZOI of Davao and the other terrestrial, but then Menado (2917h) must be 4 movement points from a supply eligible port. The closest is Kendari, but it's too far.
So, in my opinion, Menado is still OOS.
Check you too, bye!

Buona notte ci vediamo domani.

This event ends a US inter-service rivalry. Flip the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker to its Strategic Agreement side. If the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker is already on Strategic Agreement side there is no additional effect. Bonus: The Allied player receives the ABDA HQ, which is place in any in supply port in Java, Borneo, Sumatra or Celebes. If no such port is available this HQ is removed from play for the remained of the game. Remove from play if used as an event.
