According to the information released by the South China Sea strategic situation awareness program platform on August 30, a US Navy ep-3e electronic reconnaissance plane (ae1d91) appeared in the near air to the north of Taiwan on the same day, and then went to Japan via the East China Sea, with an abnormal trajectory. The ep-3e went to the South China Sea for reconnaissance on August 29, but did not receive the take-off and landing signals from Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa. It is suspected that the ep-3e took off directly from Taiwan.

Recently, US military aircraft have been operating frequently near Taiwan. It has been reported that US military aircraft have taken off and landed in Taiwan more than once before. The Taiwan military has denied the relevant claims in private or in public. Taiwan media reported on August 19 that an ep-3e electronic surveillance plane of the U.S. Army entered the airspace of Northern Taiwan on August 18, and was more likely to land at Songshan Airport. However, military officials of the Taiwan military said privately that there was no such thing. Taipei air station said that if a military aircraft landed, it would be under the jurisdiction of the military, so it would not speak on the matter.

On June 9, a Boeing C-40 transport plane of the US Navy took off from Okinawa, Japan, on the morning of June 9, flying over Taiwan. After leaving, it continued to move toward the southwest of Taiwan. In response to the news from Taiwan media that the U.S. aircraft landed at Taiwans airport for five minutes, Shi Shunwen, a spokesman for Taiwans Defense Department, said that the US aircraft did fly over Taiwan, but did not land at any airport in Taiwan.

As for the flight behavior of US military aircraft in Taiwan airspace, foreign ministry spokesman Hua Chunying once said that the US sides move seriously violates international law and the basic norms of international relations. China firmly opposes and strongly condemns this. China urges the US side to abide by the one China principle and the provisions of the three Sino US joint communiques and immediately stop such illegal and provocative acts. China will take all necessary measures to resolutely safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests.

In the 2020 CPC military strength report released this morning, Taiwans Defense Department confirmed for the first time that the Communist Party of China sends naval and air force ships and planes every day to engage in routine cross-strait cruise missions in the airspace west of the central line of the Strait, and said that recently, the United States United States has expanded its efforts to patrol aircraft and ships in the East Sea, Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea, while the Communist Party of China must follow and inspect every ship .
