Planes land on motorway in Taiwan military drill

The Taiwanese military have landed various craft on a motorway in an exercise simulating an attack on the country's airfields.

Various sections of the island's motorways are designed to be used as runways at short notice.

Air Force Colonel Li Wen-yu said preparation was as vital as the exercise itself, with dozens of soldiers cleaning debris off the highway before any craft could land on it.
