China’s PLA Air Force shows seven J-20s in the air

Jane’s reports that China’s People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) has released images showing seven Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group J-20 fifth-generation multirole fighter aircraft in the air.

This is the largest number of J-20s to be publicly shown flying in close formation. It is not known when and where the pictures were taken.

However, the maneuvers are believed to have taken place as part of rehearsals for a military parade set to take place on 1 October to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
