by Gabriel Dominguez & Andreas Rupprecht

An image has emerged on Chinese social media platforms showing that a two-seat prototype of the Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group (CAIG) J-20A fifth-generation multirole fighter aircraft has conducted what appears to have been its maiden flight.

Released on 5 November via Weibo, the image shows the prototype, which was painted in yellow primer, taking off from CAIG's airfield, next to the production facility in Chengdu-Huangtianba. It is unclear when the image was taken but it comes after photographs emerged on 28 October showing the prototype conducting taxiing trials at the same airfield.
