    Probably the closest zoom-in view of the J-20s in the videos so far.



    This chap also made some good videos of the J-10As in the MAKS 2013.

    Another great show this year. It's too much ask, of course, but would be great to see a J-20 on static at the next installment of the show in 2020. I was also greatly impressed by the immense array of UAVs on display, including the CH-7. To get a sense of what China's military aspires to you it's essential to visit this show.

    Imagine, this is just the Air Force branch showing us some of its capabilities and the strides it has made in recent years. Think of what the Navy and Army will have in store to surprise us. Now, combine all of that together, and we have a formidable Military.

    Remember those weapon show in the airshow are export version with reduced capability or monkey version. Imagine what would be the original version actually used by the PLA,It is mind boggling

    Z-20 didn't make an apperance, and it was quite a let down.

    Ah... disappointing indeed... no new photos for Mr Andreas Rupprecht new book in April next year ;) But, still, i wonder if there was a deeper underlying reason for not featuring it?

    Maybe licensing issues because iirc Z20 is an upgraded black hawk.

    But in all honesty, do they really care? Unless they are heavily pushing it for export?
