COMAC’s C919 AC104 took off from the fourth runway of Shanghai Pudong International Airport at 5:32 yesterday (August 1) and landed at 6:57, completing its first flight test.

So far, COMAC has put three other aircraft into flight test the AC101, AC102 and AC103.

"The static tests and other ground verification tests are in steady progress, and the development of C919 aircraft will enter the phase of high-density, high-difficulty and high-risk flight tests," COMAC said.
