China completes production of first big passenger plane

Post by Bonjor » Mon Nov 02, 2015 4:37 pm

The C919 narrow-body jet represents at least seven years of efforts in a state-mandated drive to reduce dependence on Airbus and Boeing


China’s first big passenger plane rolled off the assembly line on Monday as the Asian giant seeks the prestige of having its own aviation sector, and to challenge foreign giants Airbus and Boeing for market share.

Workers spent over a year putting together the C919, a narrow-body jet which can seat 168 passengers, at the Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (Comac) facility in Shanghai.

This 100% EMBRAER 190 . But assambeld in china , Embraer did not allow they to produce this plane as EMBRAER 190. That is why they named it C919.
