China has plans to market its Y-20 military transport and J-31 Stealth fighter at Zhuhai Air Show which opens on Nov one.

The Aviation Industry Corp. of China (AVIC) will promote its new generation transport aircraft Y-20 and stealth fighter J-31, the major models in the new series, at the 11th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition, in the southern port city of Zhuhai, Guangdong Province, Xinhua reported last week.

The new planes represent AVIC's progress toward the fourth generation of aircraft technology, the company said.

In June, the first two Y-20 planes were delivered to the People's Liberation Army Air Force after nearly a decade of design, manufacture and test flights.

With a maximum takeoff weight of around 200 tonnes, the large freighter plane is suitable for transporting cargo and people over long distances in diverse weather conditions.
