Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,
Tobin & Rush

Chengdu J-10A seen in Jian Shi Chu Ji.

The Chengdu J-10 is fourth generation fighter designed during the 1980's. With a secondary role as strike mission, this tail-less canard delta wing aircraft is powered by a single Lyulka-Saturn AL-31FN turbofan engine. This Russian engine was the subject of tension with China which asked without success for a licence; Russia was only kind to sell 300 units. The cockpit (with a zero-zero ejection seat under a bubble canopy) has a screen displaying data from the Russian Phazotron. But Russia didn't gave a licence and eventually it's the Chinese Type 1473H pulse-doppler fire control radar. The first full sized airframe was completed in 1993 and the first flight was done on 23 March 1998 but operational unit received the J-10 only on February 2003. The maiden flight of the biplace variant (the J-10S) occured the same year and in 2006, an upgrade J-10B (with a new air intake as main visual difference) was put in production.

More 400 airframes have been rolled-out.
