they also have fighter jets not very like china's
----------
Two MND jets crash in Yilan mountains
Two aircraft crashed in the mountains of Yilan County around 7:48 p.m. yesterday, setting the peaks aflame upon impact near the 116.4-kilometer mark of Suhua Highway, local fishermen in the area reported.
The crashed aircraft are military fighter jets from the Ministry of National Defense (MND).
At press time, MND Spokesperson Lo Shao-he (&#32645;&#32057;& #21644;) confirmed that three pilots had gone missing after performing a night-time flight training, taking off at 7:39 p.m. in Hualien yesterday.
The aircraft lost contact less than 15 minutes later and became undetectable by 7:52 p.m., when they reportedly reached the Yilan region.
Search-and-rescue teams and hundreds of soldiers have been dispatched to the Yilan stretch of Provincial Highway No. 9 to locate the air force pilots.
The crashed planes are suspected to be an F-5F and RF-5E fighter jet from the 401st Tactical Fighter Wing.
Captain Hsiao Wen-ming (&#34157;&#25991;& #27665;), 29, has been identified as the pilot of the RF5-E fighter jet, with the serial number 5506. Lieutenant Colonel Chang Chien-kuo (&#24120;&#24314;& #22283;), 41, was the pilot of the F-5F while Major Wang Hong-hsiang (&#29579;&#40251;& #31077;), 36, served as co-pilot.
The fishermen in the nearby coasts of Hualien and Yilan witnessed two loud, low-flying jets that appeared to be erratically out of control.
The aircraft flew along the Suhua Highway, heading for the surrounding mountains before disappearing from view.
A few seconds later, flames and smoke exploded across the Yilan mountains, according to witnesses.
The fishermen, suspecting that the crash had been military drill-related, called the army brigade and Su-ao police to sift through the wreckage.
Search and rescue teams quickly arrived on scene, although the mountain mist resulted in poor visibility that made the search difficult.
Local media reported that wreckage in the mountains has been identified as the fighter jet parts. Lo denied the report, only saying at press time that three pilots had gone off the radar pending further investigative details.
The Yilan County fire department received the MND call of missing fighter jets around 7:48 p.m.
Firefighters also heeded the fishermen's reports of the aircraft crashes and subsequent mountain in flames; the department said they swiftly relayed the fishermen's report to the MND.
In the 36-year-history of F-5F fighter jets, which are manufactured in Taiwan, used in the R.O.C. Air Force, 32 have reportedly crashed, proving to be a high accident rate.

So you got a laugh from the ROC constitution did you? Or haven't you ever read it? The only joke is the joke country tipped out of the UN! Painting something on a an old aircraft means you have something painted on an old aircraft grasshopper! Not that the ROC has changed its "One China Policy".

China cannot and will not force a democratic and independent country like Taiwan to be a part of the Peoples Republic of China.

Beijing knows that freedom of speech which is thriving in Taiwan is mightier than the sword.

What if Tibet, Sinjiang, Inner Mongolia, Fujian, Shang Hai also simultaneously craves for freedom and democracy?

Beijing's rulers are pretty aware of what is happening now in the Arab world .

I'm sure their knees buckles at just the though of Taiwan's democracy quickly spreading likes flames from
Anhwei to Zuochwei!

My friend, if China really wanted to reclaim Taiwan, they could do it in a matter of a few days.
