According to Singtao Daily comprehensive report, the second prototype of J20 stealth fighter aircraft, China’s fifth-generation of combat aircraft, made its first flight in Chengdu in the afternoon of May 16. The aircraft flew for approximately 20 minutes and then landed safely. The flight is said to be a complete success. In its report, the official website says, “This marks the turning of a new page in the research and development of our fifth-generation aircraft.”

The official media did not give a report at the site, but all the major military websites in China provided netizens with live report on the first flight of the second prototype of J20 marked “#2002”. It is said that preparations for the first flight of #2002 fighter aircraft was made in the morning of May 16. First, two high-speed taxiing tests were carried out on the runway. In the afternoon more than ten buses carried a few hundred honoured guests to the airfield. An airliner brought in addition guests believed to have come from Beijing.

At 2:49 pm, the J20 marked “#2002” on its fuselage taxied into the runway and soon took off into the sky. According to the netizens present at the site, it was cloudy with relatively low clouds in Chengdu on that day, but they could still see how the J20 flew. It made horizontal flight sometimes and climbed at a sharp angle sometimes, giving full display of its stability and manoeuvrability. The aircraft landed on the runway smoothly on 3:08 pm.

About chankaiyee2

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
