Amateur video showing China’s second stealth plane’s test flight emerges

Aug 20 2013 - 1 Comment

The prototype of a J-31 Falcon Eagle, China’s second stealth fighter jet that performed its maiden flight on Oct 31, 2012, can be (barely) seen in this video most probably recorded near Shenyang Aircraft Corporation facility in February 2013.

Whereas a number of images have emerged from the Chinese Internet, there are not many videos around featuring the new J-31; the majority of them are just a montage of several images.

The aircraft (a merge between an F-22 Raptor and the F-35 Lightning II) is believed to be a carrier variant, destined to China’s future aircraft carriers.

    you should laugh, at the English translation from “鹘鹰” done by this article or someone else. I don’t blame him becuz in English, there’s no match for that thousands year’s old Chinese word. I feel stupid to point this out to you , that it does not have an English name in China duh
