An “American bomber plane” has been spotted on Google Maps flying in Chinese airspace as tensions between the two great powers increasingly unraveled over the question of Taiwan.

Relations have deteriorated in recent months as China declared its claim to Taiwan, an island about 100 miles from its southeast coast.

The United States has supported Taiwan – which do not want to being absorbed into China – and it created a war of words and fears of a more tangible war between the two nations battling to be the world’s premier power.

The increase in Chinese military activity in Taiwan, including warplanes in Taiwanese airspace and ships near the coast, has raised global concern.

And now some people think the United States – which has publicly supported Taiwan – is responding by sending warplanes into Chinese airspace.

Google Maps users were mesmerized by the sight of what appears to be a stealth plane flying over cultivated fields.

The craft resembles a US Air Force B2 stealth bomber, a two-seater stealth aircraft designed during the Cold War.

A Reddit user posted captures of the apparent aircraft with the caption: “Google maps can see stealth planes” and received 1.5,000 upvotes, reports the Star of the day.

Google Map images are retrieved from satellites or planes.

The B-2 jet is capable of attack missions at any altitude up to 50,000 feet.

The gray arrow-shaped jet in the image appears to be moving so quickly that it is blurred on the camera at coordinates 39 ° 01’18.5 “N, 93 ° 35’40.5” E.

These coordinates belong to the Kazakh Autonomous County of Aksay, Jiuquan, Gansu, China, an area in the northwest of the country the size of Hawaii on the northern edge of the Tibetan Plateau, which is home to about 10,000 people.

In recent months, local media in Beijing have expressed concern over the military activity.

Last month, reports revealed that a US warship had crossed the Taiwan Strait despite mounting tensions as China threatened to take the country by force.

It was part of what the US military has called “routine activity,” but the Chinese government believes its rival is trying to escalate tensions further.

According to South China Morning PostThe US Navy said the Arleigh Burke Milius-class guided missile destroyer carried out a “routine Taiwan Strait transit” in international waters on Tuesday.

The Navy statement added, “The ship’s transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the United States’ commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific. The US military flies, sails and operates wherever international law permits. “
