Quoting Flying-Tiger (Reply 1):

Indeed:

Quote:
Kunpeng Airlines Co Ltd, a regional carrier set up by US-based Mesa Air Group and China's Shenzhen Airlines Co Ltd, has entered an order for 100 ARJ21 regional jets, China's first such homegrown aircraft.
The ARJ21 is designed and manufactured by China Aviation Industry Corp I (AVIC I).
Kunpeng Air's purchase was announced during a ceremony held today in Shanghai to mark the roll-out of the first ARJ21.
Financial details of the order were not revealed.
The turbofan-powered plane will enter flight testing in March and is expected to be ready for delivery in the third quarter of 2009.
Other domestic carriers, including Shanghai Airlines, Shandong Airlines and Xiamen Airlines, have already placed orders for 71 ARJ21 jets.

But very sharp IMO. I'd love to hear the economics on this bird with the CF34's on it.

No pictures on A.net yet...

It looks pretty neat, hope they will start production on some stretched models. I think for regional planes it will do pretty nice, but for anything larger airlines are now starting to look for more fuel efficient planes like the 787 and 350 will replace the current generation of larger aircraft.

Too bad China isn't going for composite aircraft.. that would have made the game really interesting.

Somehow, I do not think that this is a game, this is a real serious competition with far reaching economic and political goals in mind, I do not understand the views that it is a game.

The rear door looks more or less inaccessible, pretty close to the wing trailing edge. Whatever...

New aircraft keep the industry alive, so may the ARJ21 live long and prosper.  champagne 

Worth to note that in build quality the ARJ21 looks definitely superior to the roll-out sample of the Superjet 100. I'm very curious on how both are going to fare in flight testing.
