Reconnaissance aircraft of the PLA Air Force trained in the Yellow Sea and East China Sea recently to improve combat readiness and protect national strategic interests, according to the air force's Weibo account on Monday.

Shen Jinke, PLA Air Force spokesperson, said that "In this far-sea training, we have arrived in air lanes and regions that we have never been to before. On the same day, the Air Force also simultaneously arranged joint training between fighter jets, early warning aircraft and surface-to-air missile forces."

Since the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the PLA Air Force has conducted several military exercises to sea routes and international waters we have never been to, and the PLA Air Force's combat capability at sea and operations command have been improved, Shen added.
