Wow! Two J-20s together at Zhuhai?

BTW, a great town. A nice complement to Macau where I had several conference gigs.

I'm sure the Pakis would be sending their Chinese made 'state of the art' JF Blunders for the air show! Last year they were falling over each other extolling the virtues of the Blunders and claimed that many African countries and Sri Lanka had evinced immense interest in these 'fighters'.

But more than a year on, any orders? Nope! it's zilch so far! No one wants to touch this piece of crap even with a barge pole!! :pound:

one of the Classic F22 airshow flying demostration - Open Weapon-bay showcase duing the circling would be performed as well.




another interesting thing is one of J20 Initial Production batch was paited with a splinter camouflage which we have never seen... this special camouflage might be a one-off specialized scheme for the Airshow without the standard 'shining under the sun' RAM coating...




another special device for the Public show--Luneberg lens under the fuselage to increase the RCS

Russian Knights is the old face and Swifts used to perform in Airshow China, but this year, they would perform together abroad for the first time ever. the classic composite formation of both teams would shine over Zhuhai.



of course ,PLAAF August 1st Aerobatic team would fly first on every flying display day.
