American teenager flies through Taiwan on record-setting solo trip around world (2018/10/10)

Mason Andrews is an American teenager who recently became the youngest person ever to fly solo around the world. What you may not know about his 76-day trip through 22 cities is that an F-16 from Taiwan's Air Force helped guide the young pilot back on track so that he wouldn't veer into Taiwan's air space.

A light aircraft slowly descends from the sky. After landing in an airfield in the US State of Louisiana, the crowd greets the baby-faced pilot, an 18-year-old named Mason Andrews who’s now the youngest person ever to fly solo around the world.

Pilot
So, the most challenging [part] was just dealing with the weather and trying to decode all this weather information all around the world and figure out when it’s safe to fly and then deal with it once you’re in the air.

The American spent 76 days on a trip that took him to 22 different cities around the world. He purportedly ended up straying into Taiwanese air space and was then intercepted by an F-16. Andrews blamed his going off course on his radio not working and that he was trying to avoid bad weather.

Pilot
I’m gonna rest and stay in school and maybe next summer try something else cool.

Andrews admitted that he was a bit scared at the time, but it was very cool to be able to see a fighter jet up close. He wanted to snap a picture of it but decided against the idea because he didn’t want to anger the pilot, who Andrews said could see him. Taiwan’s Air Force later clarified that Andrews had accidentally veered into its Air Defense Identification Zone, which technically is not Taiwan’s air space.

青年駕輕航機環球 躲雨飛進台遭F-16攔截

以18歲又163天的紀錄,完成史上最年輕駕輕航機環遊世界的美國青少年安德魯斯,上週剛回到家鄉美國路易斯安那時表示,這次旅程最刺激的一次是不小心飛進到台灣領空,立刻遭到我國空軍F-16升空攔截。空軍今天證實此事,但強調安德魯只是誤闖防空識別區,沒有進入領空。

輕航機從空中降落,走下飛機的安德魯斯,正式成為全球單獨飛行以及環遊世界最年輕的飛行員。

“過程中最大的挑戰就是,必須要面對天氣變化,然後去分析當地的天氣資訊,找出最適合最安全飛行的時間”

來自美國的安德魯斯,花了76天,飛過22個城市,還說自己因為無線電失靈加上為了躲雨,不小心闖入了台灣領空,立刻遭到我國F-16攔截。

“現在我會先休息一下,然後回學校上課,或許明年暑假再來找點刺激的事情做”

安德魯斯坦承,當下有些害怕,但可以看到戰機真的很酷,本來還想拍張照片,但不想要激怒飛行員,因為「我知道他能看到我」。空軍也證實此事,但強調安德魯只是誤闖防空識別區,沒有進入領空。
