Display of advanced warplanes

THE People's Liberation Army airforce will put its most advanced warplanes on display in the suburbs of Beijing next month to mark the 60th founding anniversary of the PLA airforce, an airforce officer said in the capital yesterday.

All the aircraft, including Kongjing-2000 Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEWC) aircraft, J-11 fighters, H-6 bomber jets, and HQ-9 surface-to-air missiles, were made by China, said He Weirong, deputy commander of the PLA airforce.

Most of them were included in the flyby during the National Day military parade on October 1 in Beijing, according to He.

Four J-10 fighters and six J-7 fighters from the airforce's performance team are scheduled to have a flyby during the PLA airforce's founding anniversary next month.
