Chinese plane crash they're trying to erase from the net...

Thanks to James for the link!

A Chinese military aircraft has crashed during a training flight in Guizhou province in Southwest China on Jan. 29, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force said in a statement.

The statement did not reveal the type of plane involved in the incident or if there were any casualties. Multiple videos and photos circulated on Weibo show a jet crashed into a mountainous region near Zhengchang village of Suiyang in Guizhou Province.

According to some media reports, the aircraft involved is a PLA Air Force Y-8GX4 Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) aircraft, with serial no: 30513, assigned to the PLAAF 20th Special Missions Division. The Y-8G fleet of the division is reportedly based close to the crash site. Some reports added that around 40 people were killed in the crash and there are no survivors.
Story here. 

Ok, the issue here isn't the plane crash.  Military training and especially military aviation is inherently dangerous.  The fact that planes crash and people die is an unfortunate reality of the lifestyle.

You don't have to like it, but you do have to accept it.

The issue that has everyone abuzz (I'm assuming this is why everyone is talking about it) is because the Chinese govt seems to be making an effort to erase the incident from the net.

The reason why I haven't posted about this till now is because that's what they do.

Communist nations control data.  Communist nations attempt to erase data that doesn't "sing" the song that want sung.

China is a communist nation.

This is what they do.

Why people are acting surprised is beyond me.  Could it be that people have become so confused that they thought China was something different?

Long short.

This is just a case of the wider world noticing what the Chinese are doing.  You can bet your ass they've done this many times before and no one picked up on it.
