On November 27th, Japanese fighters scrambled to meet a flight of 11 Chinese aircraft flying near and some passing through the Okinawan islands although they did not violate Japanese airspace. However it was unusual because of the number of aircraft involved. 8 H-6 bombers, 1 Tu-154 intelligence gathering, 1 Y-8 intelligence gathering model, and 1 Y-8 early warning aircraft.
