REPORT: Chinese Experts Could Be In Iran Right Now Collecting Parts From The Captured RQ-170 Drone

•, Michael Kelley
 The Aviationist, citing a Chinese defense forum, reports that a group of Chinese experts may have arrived in Iran to inspect and collect parts of the the RQ-170 Sentinel drone that was commandeered by Iran in December.

After the U.S. spy drone was downed in northeastern Iran on December 4, three U.S. intelligence officials told Bloomberg that their greatest concern was that the Iranians would "give Russian or Chinese scientists access to the aircraft" to gain "insight into the unmanned spy plane’s flight controls, communications gear, video equipment and self- destruct, holding pattern or return-to-base mechanisms."

Russian and Chinese officials immediately asked for permission to inspect the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), according to the Tehran Times.
