China Not Willing To Allow Full Access To US Spy Plane


A US inspection crew which wants to assess the spy plane that stands on Hainan Island after an emergency landing on April 1 when it collided with a Chinese jet fighter has not been granted full access to the plane.

China has not provided the power that is required to get the plane running. A Pentagon spokesman said that "powering up the airplane is absolutely essential to be able to understand which of the many systems (need repair)."

This happened although the Chinese Foreign Ministry (which suffers from information flow problems sometimes)
wanted to supply power.

The US team will have to be careful when examining the plane cause they will be closely watched by the Chinese.
