BEIJING (Reuters) - The Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC) said on Wednesday the maiden flight for the C919, China’s first domestically-produced large passenger plane, is scheduled for May 5.
The maiden flight will take place in the Shanghai Pudong International Airport, subject to weather conditions, COMAC said. State media agency Xinhua earlier on Wednesday reported the maiden flight’s date.
Reuters, quoting sources, had reported last month that China planned to stage the maiden C919 flight on or around May 5.
