Dec. 24, 2017: First flight of the AVIC AG600

Built by CAIGA, which Not_amusingly is a conjugated form of the Spanish verb "caer", to fall. Let's hope that it isn't equipped with cheap composites, what's-it-doing-now!? computers, sliding seats and/or thrust reversers y que no se caiga :? (and that it does not fall off/down).

Again, we see China copy and steal fundamental designs from the United States and develop aircraft that bear a very close resemblence...or not.

Well, we have that wikipedia link that Not Carlie shared with us, and there is on epicture of the airplane there, and in the background there is another totally different but very similar airplane...

High wing... Check
Four engines... Check
Wing-mounted engines... Check
T-tail.... Check

They look almost cast with the same die,

(oh, wait, the one on the background is NOT a USA design?)

There's also a French scale model of the DC-10/L-1011 in that Turbopropandjetphoto...

Not so. 3 engines in the tail, none in the wings.
It's a scale model of a B-727 or HS 121 Trident.

INDEED, I stand corrected.
But the HS is Not_American, so both it and the Falcon are copies of the 727 :mrgreen: .

Yes, 3WE, we did see your "or not", but your post was not in blue font so it must be 100% serious :mrgreen: .

I'll assume this is irony/humour/sarcasm/satire or whatnot as the Trident design predates the 727.
Cf. The first non-stop flight across the North Atlantic - the majority of the great unwashed are unaware that this was achieved by Not_Americans 8 years before Lindbergh.

They retroactively copied Lindbergh and his Spirit of Flyover, using twice the pilots, engines and wings. Such losers! :mrgreen:

Looks more stolen from the Japanese, specifically from the Shin Meiwa.

A few years ago, the boss grabbed the corporation’s Falcon Trijet for our department of 12 or so.

I thought it was just a big business jet / mini 727...

Only later, did I learn it was a cheap composite crackerbox made by Frenchmen. I still suffer from insense, disturbing nightmares of in-flight structural breakup.

Did you died?

I'm jealous :x . Of course there's the constant fear of an in-flight structural break-up within 18 minutes, whatever automation it has going HAL and the PTSD if you're lucky enough to survive, but it sure is a sexy aeroplanie :oops:

I was expecting you to ask if we are Boeingie Bobbyie...
