The 9th International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition, better known as Airshow China, has kicked off in the southern port city of Zhuhai in Guangdong Province.
It is the only international aerospace trade show in China endorsed by the central government. The six-day show features life-size product displays, trade talks, technological exchanges and flying demonstrations.
Airshow China is the largest air expo in the Chinese Mainland. It’s been held in Zhuhai every two years since 1996.
This year’s exhibition features 650 companies from home and abroad, with more than 100 plane-related products on show.
The Breitling Wingwalkers Team from Europe has sent two Boeing Stearman Biplanes. Two women from the team will be performing on the planes’ wings. Dozens of war planes and civil aircraft from Russia and Pakistan will also be taking flight.
China’s Air Force will have the largest presence at the exhibition, with 20 planes. This includes 5 old aircrafts as well as current models, such as the JH7 long-range fighter-bomber.
China’s HQ-9, also known as FD 2000, surface-to-air missile system, is one of the main highlights of the show. As part of China’s new generation of medium-to-long range missiles, the HQ-9, features strong radar and air defence capabilities. Its command and control capabilities also allow it to coordinate with other weapons systems to form a multi-layered air defense network.
The WJ-600 medium-range high-speed drone will also be shown. It can fly up to 5 hours, with a maximum flight speed of 900 kilometers per hour. Its payload capacity is estimated at 130 kilograms. The drone has been designed to carry out various missions, including field reconnaissance, locations targeting, precision strikes and damage assessments.
Meanwhile, China’s Bayi Aerobatics Team will show off the new J-10 combat aircraft and Gunship No.10, which will be making its first appearance.
