    The 12th Dubai International Airshow kicked off on Nov. 13th. The JF-17 fighter, co-produced by China and Pakistan has made its first aerial display.

    Soaring up cloud high and beyond - The JF-17 performed 10 minutes of dizzying aerobatics: rolling, looping and spinning.

    The JF-17 fighter, co-produced by China and Pakistan has made its first aerial display.

    Li Yuhai, vice general manager of Aviation Industry Corporation of China, said, "The JF-17 is an example of the third generation jet fighters with remarkable advantage on short and medium range interception. We intended to present these abilities during its aerobatics maneuvers."

    The JF-17 can also carry over 4000 kilograms of equipment and weapons. The jet will be optimized in the future with an in-flight-refuelling system, and an advanced electronic warfare suite. The dual-seat jet for training JF-17 pilots is also under development. Though enjoying cutting edge capabilities, the cost of the jet is affordable. And attending airshows can put it on the international market.

    Li Yuhai said "The influence of the Dubai airshow is expanding. It is becoming one of the three top international airshows in the world. Many of our clients have appeared at the show. By showing the JF-17, we’re actually marching into a broader international market."

    Along with the JF-17, China is also displaying its turbo-prop airliner MA600. The 60-seat plane will make an 8-minute demonstration flight every day for the duration of the show.

    Here's an Paki article ....

    JF-17 blunder: What else you can get for the price of 50 fighter jets? – The Express Tribune

    [​IMG]

    KARACHI: Pakistan is getting a good deal, Defence Minister Ahmad Mukhtar will tell you. Instead of paying $80 million per piece for the American-built F-16s, the JF-17 Thunder fighter jets will cost us about a fourth of that, between $20 and $25 million per piece.
    The deal is so good, the minister says, that we’ve ordered 50 of the JF-17s to be delivered in the next six months.
    How much would that cost us? Between $1 and $1.25 billion. That doesn’t sound awfully expensive for national defence in itself but how else could we spend about $1.25 billion?
    Education
    About seven million children in Pakistan are not enrolled in primary schools, according to Pakistan Education Task Force. With $1.25 billion, The Citizen’s Foundation, a private NGO that runs schools for underprivileged children, could educate 1.8 million of them for three years in over 7,000 schools built from scratch. Of course, if it was spent more wisely on already constructed schools, it could possibly resolve Pakistan’s education emergency.
    Health
    The Saudi government built basic health units at a cost of Rs13 million each in quake-affected a reas. That means instead of 50 fighter jets, we could have 8,173 basic health units, or over 1,400 fully-equipped, 50-bed hospitals.
    Infrastructure
    Lack of infrastructure – roads, airports, public transit systems – is a serious constraint on Pakistan’s development. Meanwhile, the floods destroyed the already-existing highway network in the country. For $1.25 billion, the National Highway Authority could build approximately 2,500 kilometres of brand new, four-lane highways or 1,250 kms of world-class, six-lane, access controlled motorways. That’s more than three times the length of the famed Islamabad-Lahore motorway.
    Of course, it could alternatively be spent on the much-needed Gwadar airport, 13 times over!
    And if I were to be selfish and think just about Karachi, it could pay for 80% of the Karachi Circular Railway’s cost, or give the city a modern bus rapid transit network, four times. That’s real splurging.
    Power
    Each megawatt (MWe) of power produced by a thermal plant costs about $1 million in plant construction etc, on average. $1.25 billion would mean we add an additional 1,250 MWe of electricity to our starved network. Of course, there is no guarantee we’d be able to produce and then use it since lack of electricity is not due to lack of installed generation capacity. But if you’re jingoistic enough, one could also use the 50 fighter jets money for an additional nuclear reactor at Chashma that would produce 340 MWe of electricity.
