The Trump administration has raised concerns with China after two Chinese fighter jets intercepted a US military aircraft in a manner the American crew viewed as dangerous.

One person familiar with the incident said one of the Chinese fighters ?flew upside down as it intercepted a Boeing WC-135 — called the “sniffer” because its mission is to collect air particles to detect nuclear explosions — which was flying over the East China Sea.

US Pacific Command, which oversees American military operations in Asia, said two Chinese Sukhoi jets flew unprofessional manoeuvres at an unsafe distance and speed. The Pentagon has deployed the sniffer to the region because of concerns that North Korea could conduct a sixth nuclear test at some point.

The incident marks the first known complaint the Pentagon has lodged with China since Donald Trump became president.

The Chinese ministries of defence and foreign affairs made no immediate comment.

Lieutenant Colonel Lori Hodge, a US Air Force spokesperson, said the crew on the Boeing WC-135 viewed the way the Chinese fighters intercepted them as “unprofessional” because of the “manoeuvres by the Chinese pilot, as well as the speeds and proximity of both aircraft”.

She said the US was addressing the issue through diplomatic channels and a mechanism used to tackle issues between the two militaries.

两架中国喷气式战斗机对一架美国军用飞机作出拦截动作,美方认为其拦截方式相当危险,已引起特朗普政府对中国的关切。

一位知情人表示,当时美方这架波音(Boeing)WC-135正从东中国海上空飞过,其中一架中国战斗机在对其进行拦截时作出了桶滚动作。波音WC-135又称为“嗅探者”(sniffer),因为其任务是收集空气粒子以探测核爆炸。

负责监督美国在亚洲军事行动的美国太平洋司令部(US Pacific Command)表示,中国这两架“苏霍伊”(Sukhoi)喷气式战斗机(注:题图为2014年珠海航空展上的一架“苏霍伊”战斗机)的飞行距离和速度都很不安全,它们作出了非常不专业的动作。美国五角大楼(Pentagon)之所以在该地区部署这架“嗅探者”,是因为担心朝鲜可能在某一时刻进行第六次核试验。

这是自唐纳德?特朗普(Donald Trump)上台以来,五角大楼向中国提出的首次已知投诉。

中国国防部和外交部没有立即置评。

美国空军发言人、劳利?霍奇(Lori Hodge)中校表示,波音WC-135上机组成员认为根据“这名中国飞行员的操作,以及两架飞机的速度和接近距离”,中国战斗机的拦截方式“很不专业”。

她表示,美方正通过外交途径以及一项两国军方问题解决机制,来解决这一问题。
