>>  China to hold biennial air show

By Wang Di

China will open its biennial air show featuring new aircraft, trade talks and technological exchanges on November 11 in the southern port city of Zhuhai, Guangdong Province.

New weaponry will be demonstrated at the 10th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition, known as Airshow China, said spokesman of China Air Force Shen Jinke on Tuesday of September 16.

Some of the aircraft on display joined in a multinational anti-terror drill, dubbed “Peace Mission 2014,” held in north China among the regional security group Shanghai Cooperation Organization in late August.

Stunt flying will be performed by five female fighter pilots from the China Air Force with J-10 fighters, along with aerobatics teams from the Republic of Korea and the United Arab Emirates, Shen said.

An international conference on military aviation training exchanges is scheduled for the event by the Air Force and the Aviation Industry Corporation of China.

Airshow China is the only international aerospace trade show endorsed by the Chinese central government. Since 1996, the show has been held in Zhuhai every two years.

>>  Organizer confirms absence of ROK’s T-50 jets from air show

By Liu Tong

There will be no aerobatic T-50 jets performing at the upcoming biennial air show held in south China’s Guangdong Province, an organizer confirmed on Wednesday of November 5.

Zhou Zuode, general manager of the Zhuhai Airshow Company and one of the organizers, said at a press conference that, except for a verbal notice, they still have not received any formal cancellation notice from the Black Eagles Aerobatic Team of the Republic of Korea (ROK), according to a report from China News Service (CNS).

Zhou said he felt “very regretful” about the sudden cancellation, adding that similar situations in the past were mostly due to weather, deployment of aircraft and pilot health.

A Tuesday report from China Military Online said the ROK military had planned to participate in the air show in June. The aerobatic team of the ROK Air Force even assigned a C130 Hercules transport plane to the Baiyun Airport in Guangzhou in preparation for the show.

The last-minute cancellation by the Black Eagles Aerobatic Team leaves only three teams for the exhibition this year.

The planned performance would have been the team’s first show in China. The CNS report said the team flies T-50 supersonic jets, jointly produced by U.S. defense giant Lockheed Martin and Korea Aerospace Industries.
