The 70-years flypast was performed on 16 and 17 October only. Every year the Aviation University Flight Instructor Training Base of the PLAAF opens its doors to show to the youngsters how interesting it is to join the Air Force. At the same time the show has evolved into a proper air show which also attracts ever more active military aircraft, for which the initial two days are reserved. As a result, during this ninth edition, it was decided that instead of an air show at the opening of the school year, the show should be held in October as part of the 70th birthday celebration of the People’s Republic of China. Not only regionally based aircraft attended the show, but even a show-off of two J-20s and J-16 featured the programme during the initial two days. Unfortunately, for this show tickets have to be obtained in advance and we suspect not many foreigners will get one. As a result this report has been compiled from pictures available on the internet.
