Beijing: China is building a large transport aircraft for the military as part of its defence modernisation drive, a media report said on Friday.

The Y-20 long-range aircraft will improve the military's transportation, Defence Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun said. It will also be used in disaster relief operations.

"Research and development is proceeding as planned," the People's Daily quoted Yang as saying.
