Nine Foreign Aircraft Caught Intruding Indonesian Airspace, Says Air Force

June 8, 2015 -- The Indonesian Air Force has so far intercepted nine foreign aircraft illegally flying over Ambalat-Karang Unarang airspace in East Kalimantan by June, Tarakan Air Force base commander Lt Col Tiopan Hutapea said on Sunday.

The Jakarta Post quoted Tiopan as saying that the aircraft which included military jets, helicopters and drones were from Malaysia and entered Indonesian territory without proper documentation.

He said the foreign aircraft were detected on radar. They were asked to reveal their identities and to fly out of the Indonesian airspace.

All the aircraft followed the instructions, Lt Col Tiopan said.

He added that some 14 trespassing airplanes were detected by the Tarakan air base last year.

Defence Minister Ryamizard Ryacudu said the Foreign Ministry had coordinated with the relevant parties. (Thai PBS)
