The Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) MA600F freighter aircraft has made its public debut at this year's Airshow China in Zhuhai.

The MA600F, produced by AVIC's Xian Aircraft unit, completed its maiden flight on 25 October and is on display in the show's static park.

Of the backlog of 186 MA60 family aircraft, only 10-12 are MA600Fs. AVIC has sold the cargo variant to domestic logistics firms. It is also in talks to sell the type to China Post, but this deal has yet to be confirmed.

The MA600F is produced on the same assembly line as the MA600, but its key difference is its larger cargo door on the starboard side of the fuselage near the tail.
