Newsweek: Chinese Fighter Pilot Says Taiwan 'All Ours' After Being Asked to Leave Airspace
Taiwan and its surrounding airspace "is all ours," a Chinese fighter pilot reportedly remarked on Monday as the People's Liberation Army flew jets and spy planes toward the democratic island for more than half the days in March.
According to a recording carried by newspapers in Taipei and acquired by Newsweek, the exchange between pilots from the Republic of China Air Force and PLA Air Force took place at 10:04 a.m. local time after the Chinese warplane flew into Taiwan's southwest air defense identification zone (ADIZ).
Taipei's interceptor aircraft, which was not identified in local reports, dispatched a standard radio warning to its Chinese counterpart: "This is the Republic of China Air Force. The Chinese military aircraft currently flying at 6,000 meters in Taiwan's southwestern airspace, you have entered our airspace and are affecting aviation safety. Turn around and leave immediately."
The reply which came a few seconds later was brief, with the response in Chinese saying: "This is all ours."
