Venezuela’s airspace was violated on May 11th and the 13th by a US Boeing 707 E-3 Sentry. President Maduro spoke of this airplane on Latino Show on Tuesday and how it had all the components of an “espionage” plane.
Us Air force information does state that the airplane has the capability to feedback pictures to the user and the radar to detect enemy missiles and aircraft. These incidents have now sparked rumors that the US is covertly spying on the nation of Venezuela.
In light of these rumors from Luque and right wing Venezuelan politicians are actively demanding military be used against President Maduro’s political office. In a recent interview right wing political leader Henrique Capriles Radonski has put a call out for the “tanks and war planes”. President Maduro has asked for a formal charge filed against the US government regarding Venezuela’s violated airspace.
The Head of State for Venezuela has confirmed that a complaint will be delivered. There has been no statement issued yet on the US side regarding these matters.
