China successfully tests home-grown heavy air force freighter
from CTV News
China said it successfully tested a heavy air force freighter that could be a mostly home-grown substitute for the older Russian planes it now uses while substantially boosting the Chinese military's global reach. The Y-20 took off from its development base near the northwestern city of Xi'an on Saturday, the China Daily and other newspapers reported Monday. The plane can fly 44,000 kilometres with 66 tons of freight, and is designed to fill the need for a stronger, long-range heavy lift capacity.
