A mid-air encounter between China and the United States Thursday (May 19) in what the U.S. military called an "unprofessional" intercept of an American aircraft. They say it was a "sniffer" plane meant to detect radiation, and was flying in international airspace over the East China Sea. Reports came from the aircrew aboard the U.S. plane, which has been used in the past to detect evidence of possible nuclear tests by North Korea. It's unclear what the term unprofessional points to exactly, but they used the word quote "due to maneuvers by the Chinese pilot, as well as the speeds and proximity of both aircraft." A military spokesman says the American aircraft was carrying out a routine mission at the time, and operating in line with international law. So far Beijing hasn't commented on the incident. China is wary of any U.S. military activity in and around the South China Sea, where it claims a vast swathe of disputed territory.
