Taiwan Finds Debris Near Area Where U.S.-Made F-16 Went Down

  • Fighter jet disappeared during training mission Tuesday
  • Plane was among dozens sold by U.S. to help bolster island

Taiwan found debris near the area where one of its most advanced fighter jets went missing, as the search for the pilot and his aircraft stretched into a second day. 

The wreckage was found Wednesday close to where the F-16V disappeared during a training exercise, Taiwan’s National Rescue Command Center said in a text message. It is the first sign the search has zeroed-in on the location of the incident.
