Re: Chinese JSF-kopie is een ergere rookbak dan een Phantom.

Zoals bekend vliegt deze testkist met RD93 motoren bekend uit de MiG-29, en inderdaad roken deze. Dat lijkt mij geen verrassing. Het een goedkope manier om een off-the-shelf motor te gebruiken ipv een compleet nieuwe te ontwikkelen. De productieversies zullen andere motoren gebruiken zoals de WS-13A.

Re: First impressions China Airshow 2014, Zhuhai.

Impressive! Peter, what were your impressions of the airshow? Also, did you consider staying for the departure day in order to get some fence free shots of the older Chinese aircraft like the H-6? Yes I did consider staying longer but the Chinese airshows are very messy concerning arrival and depar...

Re: First impressions China Airshow 2014, Zhuhai.

What did you make of the flight demonstration of the J-31? Comments of some international observers have been less than flattering. Apparently the jet is grossly underpowered and has to fly with after burner continuously to stay level? A pic of the J-31 which clearly shows the display without using...

Re: PICS: Al-Fursan MB339 overran the runway at Zhuhai China

That is an achievement in itself since the runway at Zhuhai is over 13,000 feet (4000 metres) long.

got some access to photobucket again so here a few more from the show 9. the Sukhoi Su-35 taking off for its display of weird manouvres.

Re: First impressions China Airshow 2014, Zhuhai.

Thanks guys!. I am having some trouble accessing my Photobucket account from China so I will update next week when I have returned to Holland. The Y-20 made quite an interesting performance with steep banks and turns. The engines are realy outdated but on the other hand it sounds like an Il-76 :-) ....

First impressions China Airshow 2014, Zhuhai.

I spend 3 days at the China Airshow 2014 in Zhuhai and here are a few quick edits from the laptop. With almost no Sunshine and hazy weather it was challenging. But still very happy with the results and also with the great aircraft. 1. PLAAF line-up on the static. http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o...
