Hong Kong shows off China’s homegrown C919 jet

In Hong Kong, international media got their first up-close look at Hina’s new domestically produced passenger jet on Wednesday.

Beijing has long hoped to compete with Western rivals in the air and cut down China’s dependence on foreign technology with the C919, which made its maiden commercial flight in May.

On Saturday, a sleek, narrow-body aircraft on display at Hong Kong International Airport will fly over Victoria Harbour.

The state-owned Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC) hopes the C919 will compete with foreign models such as the Boeing 737 MAX and the Airbus A320.

In order to become self-sufficient in key technologies, China has invested heavily in the C919’s homegrown parts.

It has been in development for more than a decade, but no international buyers have been found yet.

Media and guests will be welcomed to the exhibition on Wednesday, with community representatives visiting on the following two days.

If the weather permits, the C919 will circle Hong Kong Island twice on Saturday morning.
