Test flights of More Mass Produced J-20 Stealth FightersPosted: July 10, 2016
In my post “Commissioned? Recent J-20 Photos Give Rise to Speculation” on July 4, I provided four photos of a flying J-20 stealth fighter jet with no four-digit number on the aircraft’s nose and the color of the “August 1” emblem of Chinese air force changed into blue.
That is quite different from the six J-20 prototypes and gives rise to the question whether J-20 has been commissioned in PLA air force.
Now, Adam Y of lt.cjdby.net has posted the above six photos of the test flights of two more J-20s with such coating.
From the photos we can be sure that the design of J-20 has been formalized and mass production of it has begun. However, we do not know for sure whether J-20 has been commissioned in PLA air force.
