"As we indicated they would, U.S. surveillance activities are continuing in a variety of places around the world," Pentagon spokesman Terry Southerland said. "They continue to operate in international airspace in water, as they have over the years."

After a Chinese fighter hit a U.S. EP-3 surveillance plane April 1, the 24-member American crew was detained for 11 days. Chinese authorities still refuse to release the plane.

Last week a team from the plane's manufacturer inspected the craft and said it could be flown off the island after repairs.
