Chinese aircraft intrude into Taiwan’s ADIZ for 6th time in week

Two Chinese anti-submarine aircraft violated Taiwan’s air defense identification zone (ADIZ) on Wednesday (Sept. 23) in the sixth incursion by People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) aircraft since Sept. 17.

On Wednesday evening, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) announced that two Shaanxi Y-8 anti-submarine warfare aircraft had entered the ADIZ off the southwest coast of Taiwan earlier that day. The Taiwanese Air Force responded by scrambling fighter jets to drive the planes away, broadcasting radio warnings, and tracking the aircraft with its land-based anti-aircraft missiles.
