China's advanced 4th generation fighter plane Jian 20 (J20) has made its first trial flight, Tuesday, 12:50, Chengdu. The flight lasted 18 minutes and went through successfully. Several Chinese websites have posted pictures and videos of the trial flight, in addition to recapitulating the situation.
These websites have resumed that J20's trial flight has began at 12 o'clock, 48 minutes and one second, with the plane beginning to move on the runway. At 12:50 it took off and landed at 13:11. During the taking off, the site's inspecting personnel were utterly excited. This trial flight was originally scheduled to take place on the 7th, though because the weather wasn't suitable at that day, it was postponed.
On the end of December last year, China's internet has leaked photos of the J20 fighter plane which China has developed by itself, which has drew a high level of attention of Western national defense and military experts. Some western experts believe, that as a step forward after the US' F22 and Russian T50, J20 is the world's most advanced fighter plane.
Vice editor-in-chief of the Asian edition of the internet magazine "Flying", said that nobody can keep a secret better than China, and that now the J20 fighter plane is already not a secret. He said that the outside world has learned the J20's existance has only two possible reasons: Either China will make it gradually transparent, or it wants to send a message to the outer world.
