    China’s 1st Independently Developed Aircraft Takes Off With 70 Onboard

    06/28/16 AT 3:23 AM

    China’s first domestically manufactured regional passenger jet took off Tuesday morning from the southwest Chengdu to Shanghai in the east. The Comac ARJ21 Xiangfeng is a twin-engined regional jet that carried 70 passengers aboard on its maiden flight.

    The aircraft, which has been manufactured by the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China Ltd, has a maximum passenger capacity of 90 and a maximum travel of over 1,242 miles.

    "This plane filled the gap of market research, development, promotion, technology development, manufacturing and customer services of commercial planes after almost 20 years' efforts. It gives us precious experiences and we have learned a lot. It also laid a solid foundation to develop large civil aircraft," Wu Xingshi, former chief designer of ARJ21, reportedly said.

    The airline reportedly said that the carrier has trained eight captains to pilot the ARJ21 while 52 flight attendants have been trained to attend to passengers on board.

    The passenger plane will fly between Chengdu and Shanghai every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, local media reports said.

    it took 20 years to make a plane that can't compete with those made in western nations?

    these chinks are a tad retarded if you ask me

    Shocking - China knocked off a 737.

    I'll pass on flying in it until it has passed FAA scrutiny for 10 yrs.

    So the Chinese spent 20 years of R&D and created a plane that looks EXACTLY like every other plane being used right now. Way to innovate there ya chinky bastid! :asian:

    BTW how does it work in their favor?

    (Boeing)The company estimates Chinese carriers will buy or lease 6300 commercial transports over the next 20 years, and 4800 of those will be single-aisle jetliners like the 737 and A320.

    Airbus has already set up 2 Plants in China
    Boeing setting 1 up assembly plant in China

    That plane is a direct rip-off of the Fokker 100 and the Bombardier:

    That is a updated version of the original legendary tail twin engine Douglas DC-9

    Maybe that's why all the other planes look exactly each other? Because that's what works?

    Isn't it great what 30 years of state-sponsored espionage against Western companies can produce?
