Post by davechng »

Got a chance to do some spotting in Chengdu CHina! This is part of the Chengdu Aircraft Industrial Group and part of the CHengdu Aerospace Corp. AVIC_)

On this day we caught some really interesting flying including a 2 seater FC-1 and couple of J-10C . 4 sorties was done within the afternoon till about 5pm.,

I will have a write up and article soon stay tune for more

How the hell did you pull that off? Surely that’s risking arrest?

did ok since there is bunch of spotters outside .... Althought I go lw key by hiding my big lens and only take it out when the jets are out..

I miss the J20 test flight by a day! kind of sucks!

DId get to teh chopper base and rows and rows of Attack Z-10 and MI8 on the tarmac! did not get to shoot since a lot of mil personnel walk around the fence

As Andy said, very risky indeed. :hide:

Nicely caught, wouldn't recommend doing it again though..

Actually not as bad since this is an aircraft factory kind of like Lockheed martin... bunch of people hang around the fence... and in the vicinity there is bunch of local restaurant that would setup for the aviation seekers.... anyway they are setup on the other side of the runway!

On the highway you can see them coming in to land really good....

I'll be in Chengdu in April and would be grateful if you could give guidance to location of the airfield and spotting sites. Wife can see the pandas and I can watch the jets!
