Downed EP-3 Flies Again


The Navy EP-3 reconnaissance plane that made an emergency landing in China last year after colliding with a Chinese fighter jet is back in the air. The EP-3 was shipped back in pieces to the U.S. where it was reassembled and taken for a test flight last Friday. According to Lockheed Martin, everything went smoothly. At least one more flight will be conducted before the plane gets updated electronics. After that, the EP-3 will be returned to regular duty.
