    IMAGE HAS MALWARE oh really?

    Here is the link to the TV report (bulletin 2):

    http://bugu.cntv.cn/news/C11145/classpage/video/20110108/100551.shtml

    Image plied off of a TV news report describing an inspection by Zhao Zhenyong, governor of Shannxi province, of AVIC's affiliates in Xi'an. The placard shows a model of the TAV and is headlined: Our country's TAV made a successful test flight.

    For those in the know, this is however old news.

    well, it is reported that CHina had to explode the toy before it landed wrongly outside China.

    the wrongly landing was caused by one low-level error ,that the parameter of landing-spot was set wrongly.

    This time the test flight was carried out on a full-sized verifier. Work has now entered the engineering/prototype phase.

    China's CAV(Common Aero Vehicle) programme is also going full-steam ahead. If everything goes according to the plan, 2020 should see the deployment of CAVs.

    Hello Elmendorf AFB and Diego Garcia (in less than 1 hour).

    it is reported that it was to land in Russia.

    anyhow, Chinese had exploded the toy before it landed,just in order to avoid the leak of techs.

    no. the lauch and hyperspeed-crusing in out space were quite successful....

    the wrongly landing was a quite low-level error!

    lets look at it this way it did return to earth safe, just navigational problem which will be cured in future flights, BTW Russians got the destroyed craft ??? they might sue you for damages caused by derby of the craft .

    That rumour was NOT related to the "test" we are talking about in this thread, and was, if you will, intended to create confusion.

    The "test" was a complete success.

    The question is when we have 1st glimpses of the prototype in its physical.
