washington, The incident of American and Chinese fighter jets coming face to face in the South China Sea has increased the tension between the two countries once again. A Chinese fighter jet flew dangerously within 20 feet (six meters) of a US Air Force surveillance plane over the South China Sea, news agency AFP quoted the US military as saying on Thursday. In a December 21 incident, a Chinese Navy J-11 fighter pilot performed an unsafe takeoff in front of a US Air Force RC-135 aircraft, the US Indo-Pacific Command said in a statement.

The statement further said that the Chinese pilot flew in front of and within 20 feet of the American plane’s nose, forcing the RC-135 to change course to avoid a collision. The US command said the RC-135 was legally operating a routine flight in international airspace over the South China Sea. This incident happened when China sent a group of warplanes over the sea towards Taiwan as a show of strength.

In the biggest action since Beijing deployed military aircraft in Taiwan’s air defense zone, the Chinese military sent a big message to the US by flying 71 warplanes, including dozens of fighter jets, in military exercises around Taiwan. At the same time, the People’s Liberation Army said that it had organized a strike drill on Sunday in response to the ongoing alliance between the United States and Taiwan. There have been more than 1,700 such incursions into Taiwan’s airspace by China so far this year, compared to 969 in 2021, according to an AFP database. Taiwan’s Defense Ministry said it recorded about 380 incursions in 2020.
