China’s C919 jet lands successfully after maiden flight

China’s home-grown C919 passenger jet landed successfully in Shanghai after an 80-minute maiden flight on Friday, a major step for Beijing as it looks to boost its profile in the global aviation market.

The narrow-body aircraft, which will compete with Boeing’s (BA.N) 737 and the Airbus (AIR.PA) A320, is a key symbol of China’s ambitions to muscle into a global jet market estimated to be worth $2 trillion over the next 20 years. (Courtesy Reuters)
