One Chinese pilot apparently has a death wish. It takes cojones big enough to carry around in a wheelbarrow to play chicken with a huge B-52 bomber hurtling through the air at hundreds of miles an hour. This hotshot flew within 10 feet, just to have something to brag about back in the barracks.
Pilot makes unsafe intercept
The unnamed Chinese pilot is sure to face slap on the wrist level punishment for what he did. Authorities call playing chicken at 45,000 feet an “unsafe intercept.” When any two aircraft get within 10 feet of each other, it’s considered a “critically close distance.”
Even something as huge as a B-52 bomber would feel the sudden impact of a Shenyang J-11 as a whole lot more than a “bird strike.”
On Tuesday, October 24, the Chinese pilot blazed in rapidly toward the U.S. B-52 bomber somewhere over the South China Sea.
US military is now crying ???? like a baby that a Chinese fighter jet came within 10 feet of a US Air Force B-52 bomber flying over the South China Sea.

The part that’s got the Pentagon brass all a-jingle is the fact the sneaky yellow devil “came within 10 feet of contact.” The plane, U.S. Indo-Pacific Command reports, “harassed the B-52 briefly.”
The bully kept flying in close at “uncontrolled excessive speed, flying below, in front of, and within 10 feet of the B-52, putting both aircraft in danger of a collision.” That’s totally unprofessional, the military spokesperson declares.
The generals are “concerned” by the behavior of the Chinese pilot. This isn’t the first time they tried to play chicken with our aircraft. The Pentagon notes “China’s recent history of similar stunts puts peace in the region at risk.”
Strategically valuable airspace
The military official briefing the press made it clear that the Chinese showoff was flying by the seat of his pants and almost lost his bottom. Radar on the B-52 is good enough to confirm the really near miss.
“We are concerned this pilot was unaware of how close he came to causing a collision.” That doesn’t mean we’re going to stay out of the controversial area.
Airspace, the official relates, “over the South China Sea is strategically valuable, and China has sought to assert control over the region as the U.S. and its allies conduct drills.” Those drills are meant to send the Pooh Bear a message.
Biden team’s response: Chinese pilot "demonstrated poor airmanship.”

If he wants to “re-unify” Taiwan, he’s going to have to tangle with America and it’s nuclear arsenal to do it. Xi Jinping is well prepared for that. He’s hoping that the pilot or one just like him, will tease us into firing the first shot.
China says that it’s all our fault for flying our bombers in places they shouldn’t be. “The U.S. military planes traveled thousands of miles to China’s doorstep to flex muscle,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning counters.
Their pilot reports that we have it backwards. The U.S. B-52 came at their fighter jet at “uncontrollably excessive speeds.” Our meddling in Taiwan “is the source of maritime and air security risks, and is not conducive to regional peace and stability.” San Francisco is going to glow in the dark if this keeps up, they hint.
