OSHCast 2008: Aero-TV Hails The CJ-6's 'Nifty Fifty'

AirVenture 2008 Celebrates 50th Anniversary Of Nanchang CJ-6

One of the longest-produced aircraft models in history, the Nanchang CJ-6, is celebrating its 50th anniversary Oshkosh 2008.

The RedStar Pilot's Association, the owners' group for the Chinese-built military trainer aircraft, organized the Oshkosh activities in honor of the golden anniversary with cooperation of EAA's Warbirds of America. One of the highlights was a 50-airplane formation during the warbird segment of the EAA AirVenture afternoon air show on Wednesday, July 30.

The Nanchang CJ-6 was the first indigenous Chinese aircraft design to be produced, and 50 years and 2,200 copies later, it's still in production. More than 200 of these aircraft are actively flown in the United States and regularly participate in air shows under the RedStar banner.

Practice flights began on July 24 at West Bend, WI and a mass formation arrival helped open the EAA Warbirds of America air show performance.

In addition to the milestone CJ-6 anniversary, 2008 also marks the 15th year of the RedStar Pilot's Association.
