Pentagon Confirms B-52 Bomber Flew Over South China Sea

A US B-52 strategic bomber recently flew near Chinese man-made islands in the South China Sea, the Pentagon said on Thursday.

The disputed waters have been a point of contention between Beijing and Washington. The United States does not recognize China’s claims of sovereignty over the man-made islands.

On Thursday, the Pentagon said the bomber was contacted by Chinese ground controllers, but continued its mission undeterred, Reuters reported.

>”We conduct B-52 flights in international air space in that part of the world all the time,” Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook told a briefing.

“My understanding is there was one B-52 flight, I’m not even sure the date on it, but there was an effort made by Chinese ground controllers to reach out to that aircraft and that aircraft continued its mission…. Nothing changed.”
