Special-purpose aircraft exhibited in National Day military parade

An aircraft echelon composed of three types of new aircraft which were developed and produced independently by China, flew over Tian’anmen Square Tuesday in a military parade marking the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China on Tuesday. The three aircraft, which are nicknamed “The Three Musketeers in the air”, were J-20, China’s first stealth fighter, the J-16 fighter bomber and the J-10C fighter jet.The J-20 is China’s fourth-generation medium and long-range fighter aircraft, and it was commissioned into air force combat service in 2018. This year’s national day celebration was the first time for the aircraft to appear in a national day parade. The J-20 aircraft’s special shape enables its high-maneuverability and high stealthy performance during actual combat.
