    Problems with
    the Chengdu J-20,
    China’s first
    fifth-generation
    stealth fighter,
    were recently
    revealed in state
    media for the
    first time,
    according to
    Duowei News, an
    outlet operated
    by overseas
    Chinese.
    China Aviation
    News reported
    that at least two
    malfunctions
    were encountered
    by Chengdu
    Aircraft Industry
    Group when the
    first production
    version of a J-20
    with the serial
    number 2011 was
    taxiing on the
    ground on Jan. 29.
    First was a
    system
    breakdown, then
    came an
    unexpected
    malfunction
    when the
    fighter’s engine
    of was
    conducting test
    run.
    The plane finally
    conducted its
    first successful
    test flight on
    Mar. 2 and later
    completed two
    further test
    flights. The
    report said that
    the stealth
    fighter is likely
    to enter service
    with the People’s
    Liberation Army
    Air Force in
    small numbers in
    2016.
