2. Shaanxi KJ200 AEW platform
Image

3. The Ilyushin KJ2000 was a very welcomed surprise
Image

4. The new Chinese transport plane, the Xian Y-20

5. this Y-9 was present at the static

6. Sukhoi Su-35 taking off.

The Xian Y-20 looks like an A400M with Jet Engines.

Very interesting selection of aircraft.

I think the Y20 looks like the Japanese C1 more than a C17 to me.
Would love to have that set of shots in my collection , great posting :clap:

Smashing set of images from behind the "Bamboo Curtain" it does however seem that the Chinese, like they with their copy-cat cars, seem to copy designs from the West
