One of the longest-produced aircraft models in history, the
Nanchang CJ-6, is celebrating its 50th anniversary Oshkosh
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
In addition to the milestone CJ-6 anniversary, 2008 also marks
the 15th year of the RedStar Pilot's Association.
