Chengdu, China, 26 February 2012 – A very nice video of this year's 7th and 8th test flight of the China's fifth generation Chengdu J-20 'Black Eagle' stealth fighter. On the video the aircraft performs low altitude passes, vertical climbs etc.
In 31 January Aviation Week article Bill Sweetman wrote "Every indication is that nobody in Western intelligence saw the Chengdu J-20 coming. While it was known that China was developing a stealthy combat aircraft, the J-20 has emerged earlier than expected and appears to be more mature than the X‑plane or demonstrator that many people anticipated."
