The number of people following Pelosi’s plane reached record high

The whole world flocked to flight tracking website Flightradar24 to keep track of whether Pelosi’s private plane landed in Taiwan. The website posted tracking data for Pelosi’s plane on its twitter account and said that more than 700,000 people worldwide followed Pelosi’s plane simultaneously, breaking Argentina’s Lionel Messi’s record.

More than 2.92 million people followed the 7-hour flight

According to data published by Flightradar24, Pelosi’s private plane SPAR19 took off from Kuala Lumpur yesterday at 3:42 p.m. and its online tracking number is over 200,000.

According to Flightradar24, during the seven-hour flight from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei, at least 2.92 million people worldwide followed the plane.

Why did so many people follow the flight?

The rumors that the Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi would visit Taiwan, which China does not recognize its independence, increased in July. The US administration was also distant from the 82-year-old Democrat politician’s visit to Taiwan. In a statement about these rumors, US President Joe Biden made the statement that “the military does not think this visit is a good idea”.

The Chinese army had warned that a possible visit would have serious consequences, and the Chinese army had made it clear that they would not tolerate such a visit. A Chinese military spokesman said, “If the US side persists, the Chinese military will never sit idly by and take strong measures.” he said.

The plane landed safely

“Our talks with the Taiwanese leader reaffirm our support for our partner and support our common interests, including advancing a free, open Indo-Pacific region,” Pelosi said on her social media account after the plane landed.

As the world faces a choice between autocracy and democracy, America’s solidarity with the 23 million Taiwanese is more important than ever today. “Our visit is one of several congressional delegations to Taiwan and in no way contradicts long-standing US policy guided by the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act, the US-China Joint Declarations and the Six Assurances.”
