IDF fighter jet makes forced landing at Taichung airport
Taipei, July 11 (CNA) An Indigenous Defense Fighter (IDF) jet was forced to make an emergency landing at Chingchuankang Airport in Taichung on Thursday due to mechanical trouble, the Air Force Command Headquarters said.
The jet was on a routine training mission when it developed a mechanical problem and had to return to the airport in Taichung, where it landed safely at 5 p.m., the Air Force said.
As a result of the emergency landing, however, eight commercial flights were disrupted at the airport, which handles both military and commercial flights, the Air Force said.
The Air Force denied reports that the jet had made a belly landing, saying that a special task force would investigate the incident.
