Flightradar: US Air Force special flight to Asia lands in Hawaii

MOSCOW, July 30 – RIA Novosti. A US Air Force special plane bound for Asia has landed in Hawaii, to witness data from the Flightradar service that tracks flights.

According to information from open sources, we are talking about an aircraft with registration number 09-0540 belonging to the US Air Force. As of 16:40 Moscow time, the plane landed at Honolulu airport.

As reported on website USAFBoeing C-40C aircraft provide “safe, comfortable and reliable transportation” of American leaders and especially members of Congress.

On the eve of the American media wrote that Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi went on a tour of Asia, where she will visit Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and Singapore. It was not ruled out that the Taiwan visit would take place, but Pelosi declined to comment on it, citing security requirements.

The speaker’s tour of Asia was scheduled for April, and a visit to Taiwan was also planned, but Pelosi suddenly canceled the trip because she was infected with the coronavirus. The media claim that Chinese diplomats are actively working to convey to US congressmen that visiting the island is undesirable.

Beijing stated that in the event of Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, decisive and effective measures will be taken to protect the state’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and that the United States will be fully responsible for all serious consequences. Taiwan positions itself as a separate state, but China officially considers it its own province and insists on the “one China policy” around the world. The United States officially adheres to this principle, but in fact not only actively contacts the island, but also regularly supplies weapons there.
