US military reports another incident with Chinese aircraft

The United States Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM) revealed on Tuesday that a pilot of a Chinese J-16 fighter jet "performed an unnecessarily aggressive maneuver during the intercept of a US Air Force RC-135 aircraft" on May 26.

The pilot "flew directly in front of the nose of the RC-135, forcing the US aircraft to fly through its wake turbulence," according to the US military.

The RC-135 crew acted in accordance with international law while carrying out a "routine" operation over the South China Sea, the USINDOPACOM claimed.
