China said it has successfully conducted the test flight of its first country made jumbo air-freighter.



Beijing: China Saturday said it has successfully conducted the test flight of its first country made jumbo air-freighter, capable of handling various air transportation tasks.
The Yun-20, or Transport-20, is a huge, multi-function airfreighter which can perform various long-distance air transportation tasks targeting cargo and passengers, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
The successful maiden flight of Yun-20 is significant in promoting China`s economic and national defence buildup as well as bettering its emergency handling such as disaster relief and humanitarian aid, it said.

The giant aircraft will continue to undergo experiments and test flights as scheduled, the report said.

The new plane adds to the new stealth and carrier landing fighters said to have been developed by China in recent months.
