China expands its 2 air force bases closest to Taiwan

Amid dramatically more frequent incursions by Chinese military planes into Taiwan’s air defense identification zone (ADIZ), China appears to be expanding its two airbases closest to Taiwan. Google Earth images of the two closest People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) bases in Fujian Province show evidence of massive expansions. The bases in question, Longtian Airbase and Huian Airbase, sit 170 kilometers and 190 km away, respectively, enabling Chinese aircraft to reach Taipei within seven minutes. Source Taiwan News
