Here comes the maiden(首次的) flight(飞行) for China's first domestically produced(生产) large passenger plane!
The C919 took to the air for the first time from Shanghai Pudong International Airport(机场) on May 5. Let's take a closer look at C919 from inside(内部的) out.
China's first domestically produced large passenger plane. The jetliner, built for medium-haul flights, has up to 174 seats(座位) and is powered by a twin(双) engine(引擎).
The aircraft is developed by the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC). Its main rivals will include(包括) Airbus 320 and Boeing 737.
