U.S. flies two warplanes over East China Sea, ignoring new Chinese air defense zone

“The Pentagon announced Tuesday that it had defied Beijing by flying two warplanes over the East China Sea on a training exercise, ignoring a recent edict from China that it be informed in advance of any such flights in the region. U.S. military officials said they deployed two unarmed B-52 bombers late Monday over a small island chain that China and Japan both claim as their territory. Lt. Col. Tom Crosson, a military spokesman, described the flights as ‘uneventful’ and said they were part of a previously scheduled training mission. He said there was ‘no contact, no reaction from China.’”
