    Re: CHinese indigenious new large conveyer ,Y20, to start test-flight in severa days

    If the images portrayed by China's Xinhua news agency were accurate, China's jetliner for the 21st century looked suspiciously like a Russian military transport from the 1970s. The high-wing, high-tailed creation, with its multiple banks of landing gear trucks clustered under the fuselage, looks like the big Antonovs that still toil as chartered military cargo aircraft. It looked nothing like the sleek shape of the Boeing 787 that many consider the technology driver of the next generation of commercial airliners.

    Why does India buy C-17 instead of B787 for its air force?

    If one looks at the photo posted of Y 20, it does look like a larger IL 76.

    Actually, I don't know it all. In your original post, you are implying that Y-20 is built using old technology and B787 represents the future. India paid $4b for 10 C-17, about 400 million per plane. On the other hand, B787 costs around 150-200 million. I am asking your opinion on why India paid more to buy planes of old technology.

    Accepting your numbers for costs, 787 and C-17 have quite different specifications, systems, and roles. How can they be compared in this discussion?

    it's not important that what it looks like.for me cargo planes all looks similar.

    we cares more about how much it can load and what's its meaning for china aviation

    Maybe it's because it is? This aircraft will likely initially be powered by D-30.
