Chinese forces deployed to the hotly-contested South China Sea ordered a US Navy reconnaissance aircraft to "leave immediately" six times Friday.

The pilot stayed the course, refusing to back down.

Business Insider reports that a US Navy P-8A Poseidon reconnaissance plane flew past China's garrisons in the Spratly Islands.

The pilot gave the CNN reporters aboard the aircraft a view of Chinese militarization in the region.
