S Korea fires warning shots as Russian and Chinese aircraft violate airspace.

S Korean Defense Ministry said it fired warning shots after a Russian aircraft violated its airspace. South Korean F-15K and KF-16 fighter jets were scrambled after two Chinese and three Russian aircraft approached the ROK air defense identification zone (KADIZ) over the Sea of Japan on Tuesday morning.

This is pretty normal. No reason to freak out. They like pushing buttons. Watched button pushing happen with my own eyes at sea in the US Navy one time, with a Russian destroyer several years ago. We didnt even go to general quarters. Iran did the same alot with their fighters and small boats too, around that same time. This was during the Obama Administration. Theres nothing to worry about. You just know about it now.

Glad to see South Korea putting the aircraft we sold then to good use.

aircraft is a collective noun. Illiterate people shouldn't edit English posts.

A Russian warplane haven't been shot out of the skies for months now. Is it that time again?
