Japan Today - News - Taiwan conducts rare jet fighter landing drills on highway -Japan's Leading International News Network

TAIPEI — Taiwan's military practiced rarely seen jet fighter landing drills on its main north-south highway Wednesday in a bid to test the air force's combat readiness.

The 8-kilometer section of the roadway along southern Tainan County was shut down, from 3 am to 9 am, for the first time since the busy artery was built 26 years ago to see two French-made Mirage jets land, refuel, reload and take off. (Kyodo News)
