Circling overhead for over almost 2 hours today. It made 7 or 8 passes right over the office a a decent bank angle. The last two were low. So low I could see the white paint in the gear wells. Quite a little airshow. Interesting no chase plane. A little louder than the J10s normally are, but maybe that was because of the extra power required by the lowered gear. It set off a few scooter alarms here. Normally I see just J10's flying around, and was surprised to see this thing.

I have pictures, but too bad I only have an old digital camera with a small zoom.

I work in an industrial park northwest of Chengdu, about 5 miles from the end of the military runway.

Cool. I remember seeing a silver H-5 Beagle in a beautiful blue sky over Chengdu when I visited as a tourist.
