    Hopefully there aren't two unrelated crashes in the same week! Anyways the PLA hasn't released official info on the crash yet. What we know is that a plane definitely crashed and one of the pilots died (two seater?). Some people are suggesting that it may be a J-10 or a Su-27/Su-30/J-11.

    PLAAF is still producing J10As?! J10Bs are still not ready for production?

    J-10B won't be in mass production until Ws-10A is ready.

    But according to sources (I have posted these source in the WS-10 thread), that the WS-10A was ready for batch production on Jan 2010.

    Testing isn't something that happens at the snap of a finger. Neither is making all the tools necessary for a full production run en masse.

    By ready I mean mass production of Ws-10a engine and drastic reduction in Russian engine imports. It will still take time to see just how well the ws-10a peforms. It is also possible that the Ws-10a is already mature but the PLA is just playing the usual game and keeping us frustrated :D.

    You still have to consider many J-11B waiting for FWS-10 and old J-11A waiting for their engines to be replaced.

    Mass and batch production doesn't meant it can easily chunk out 500 engines per year.
