Imagine if they showcased a WS-15 prototype there.
Specs would be even better ... imagine if they provided us the thrust like the Taihang? We need something like this for the WS-15 lol

You think people don’t ask? No one’s telling.
Well we did get this confirmation back in Zhuhai 2016 on the 14.5t Taihang. I just wish someone would do this for the WS-15 or for the latest Taihang variant.
Regarding the Taihang family, someone from CJDBY went to ask an official at the engine booth at Zhuhai and got confirmation that the

, which translates to 137kN. The official also indicated that a 14.5 tonne thrust version is under development.

I’m just saying I’m sure plenty of people ask about the WS-15 at every air show. Can’t publish what they don’t answer though.

Honestly for their sake I hope the show gets cancelled unless a vaccine can come out.

The latest evidence heavily implies that crowded spaces, in particular indoor venues (i.e. weapons exhibitions), are a huge risk factor for COVID transmission.

Or maybe a online airshow and virtual exhibition. It's not unheard of. Though I bet the local government would love the airshow to go as usual, for economic benefits.

I don’t think many foreigners are attending since there is a fourteen day quarantine limit for entering Zhuhai.

Regardless whether or not there are foreign visitors, these venues should be held off to prevent community transmission. We've already seen what large gatherings can do from such precedents in certain US states (Florida).

Who is going in November? I am in Guizhou/Chongqing area, planning to go on 14/15 Nov.
Not me :p . But if you can could you please ask the AVIC representatives of the specs of the latest WS-10 and even WS-15? The last specs of the WS-10 we got was from the 2014 show and I don't think we have gotten any clear specs (esp thrust) about the WS-15. It would be a huge revelation if they answer, even for just the WS-10.
