PICTURE: CRAIC displays CR929 cabin mock-up

Sino-Russian joint venture CRAIC is displaying a full-size mock-up of the CR929 widebody jet at Airshow China in Zhuhai.

It is the first time that the two aircraft manufacturers, Russia's United Aircraft and China's Comac, have shown a physical mock-up of their planned twin-aisle project.

CRAIC firmed up the external shape and dimensions of the baseline CR929-600 in June.

In a standard three-class configuration, the -600 will accommodate 280 passengers and has a 12,000km (6,490nm) range. CRAIC has also signalled plans to launch a shortened -500 variant, with capacity for 250 passengers and a range of 14,000km, as well as a stretched -700 with capacity for 320 passengers and a range of 10,000km.

The aircraft is scheduled for service in the late 2020s.
