Uni Air Flight Lands on Pratas Islands|立榮航空高雄飛東沙包機 上午已順利抵達
A Uni Air chartered flight took off from Kaohsiung for the Pratas Islands at 8:35 a.m. The flight was carrying several dozen passengers, including Coast Guard Administration officials and Marine National Park Headquarters officials. As a previous chartered flight that attempted the same trip on Oct. 15 was turned back by the Hong Kong Zone, this flight was being watched by many. Meanwhile, a PRC aircraft entered Taiwan's southeastern air defense identification zone at 8 a.m.
A chartered Uni Air flight took off from Kaohsiung at 8:20 a.m. after a 15-minute delay and landed on the Pratas Islands at 9:44 a.m. The flight was originally scheduled for the 22nd, but was canceled due to inclement weather.
This was a normal flight. (Did you have any contact with the Hong Kong side?) We prepared for the flight in accordance with the information given to us by Uni Air and then we flew to the Pratas Islands today.
On the 15th, a previous run of the regular flight was turned back by Hong Kong officials. The flight on the 26th was carrying several dozen passengers, including Coast Guard and Marine National Park Headquarters officials. After a break of two days, PRC aircraft were again spotted in Taiwan's air defense identification zone on the 25th and 26th. According to records, the aircraft breached the southeastern part of Taiwan's ADIZ at 2,000 meters. As usual, the ROC Air Force ordered the aircraft to leave. Observers believe the PRC aircraft was a Shaanxi Y-8 transport aircraft making its 20th appearance this month in Taiwan's ADIZ. Retired Major General Yu Bei-chen says the US arms sale to Taiwan will not be affected by the outcome of the presidential election.
The Republic of China is a peace-loving country. It doesn't have defensive weapons of aggression. That's why (the US) was willing to sell us these defensive weapons this time. It shows that they trust the ROC, and trust the ROC's Ministry of National Defense to not act rashly.
Yu says in contrast to the People's Liberation Army, the ROC military has never committed an act of provocation in all these years. According to Yu, this is why the US is now willing to sell weapons to Taiwan. According to a Twitter user, a US Air Force RC-135W and KC-135T were heading towards the South China Sea on the morning of the 26th.
海巡署東沙分署秘書室主任 賴育杰表示：「這一趟的航程，目前就是保持正常。（有去跟哪一方，就是香港方，去做聯繫，或者接洽嗎？) 我們按照立榮航空，通知我們的部分，我們做一個準備飛行，然後我們今天，正式飛往東沙。」
