China: J-20 completes second flight test [video]

Communist Party mouthpiece Global Times reports today:

Photos of China’s J-20 stealth fighter prototype are all the rage on online military forums, after word emerged that another test flight was completed Sunday when officials in Beijing celebrated the 60th anniversary of the establishment of China’s aviation industry.

Some of the online footage showed scores of military enthusiasts yelling when an aircraft flew over the Chengdu Aircraft Design Institute’s airfield in Sichuan Province, but it was unclear whether the plane was the J-20 prototype.

“The J-20 made several passes and waggled its wings (rolling the plane first to one side then to the other) to salute the crowd near the airfield,” a witness told the Global Times on condition of anonymity, adding that the plane took off at around 4:25 pm and landed at about 5:50 pm.
