Chinese businessman Su Bin pled guilty on Wednesday to charges of conspiring to steal US military aircraft data, The Financial Times reported, citing a plea agreement filed in the US District Court for the Central district of California. Su admitted to working with two unnamed Chinese co-conspirators over an almost six-year period ending just before his arrest in Canada in 2014, targeting Boeing’s C-17 military transport aircraft and Lockheed Martin’s F-35 and F-22 fighter jets. Su is due to be sentenced on July 13 and faces a maximum sentence of five years and a fine of US$250,000 or twice his financial gain from the spying, whichever is greater.
