Most J-8 briefs that I attended centered on fiscal limitations.
The last stop on my J-8 tour was the Forces Division.
During my year in the J-8, I learned a great deal about our sister Services and joint strategic operations.
Then, one J-8 drew close to the EP-3E's left wing, at times just 10 feet away.
After the J-8 hit us, we snap-rolled right away and went into an inverted dive.
We now know the J-8 did ask for permission to shoot us down once we entered Chinese air space.
After some attention-getting antics, the J-8s
came too close, one of them hitting the Aries II's No.
