PLA aircraft fly close to Okinawa for exercise

PLA Air Force aircraft were spotted near Okinawan airspace for three consecutive days in late October, according to Japanese national broadcaster Nippon Hoso Kyokai.

The Japanese defense ministry claimed that this is the first time the PLA has flown formations of four aircraft over Japan's air defense identification zone in a long period of time. The formation consisted of two Y-8 early warning aircraft and two H-6 strategic bombers. The Chinese aircraft flew past the Miyako waterway towards a naval exercise hundreds of kilometers south of Okinawa.
