Watch the exact radio conversation between a U.S. Navy pilot of P-8A Poseidon surveillance plane and the Chinese navy over disputed West Philippine Sea.


The Chinese navy repeatedly warned the U.S. Navy P-8A Poseidon plane to leave airspace around disputed islands in the South China Sea. “Foreign military aircraft, this is Chinese navy. You are approaching our military alert zone. Leave immediately,” a Chinese naval officer warned the U.S. plane, “Your action is unfriendly and dangerous. Please go away quickly.”
