Talk about checking out the competition! A US Air Force F-16 pilot was pictured trying his hand on a simulator for China's Hongdu Aviation L-15 advanced jet trainer at last month's Paris Air Show (photos above and below).
It would have been interesting to hear what his reaction was, but these pictures came out in the military news section of China's Sina.com website. The full set of photos can be found in this section of the website. If anyone can find a reaction somewhere, please let me know.
