The state-owned Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) will prominently show the world with two iconic models of its "large aircraft family" - Y-20 transport jet and the world's largest amphibious aircraft AG600. It is also the first time the two aircraft displayed in such event.

The AG-600, which has a maximum take-off weight of 53.5 tonnes and a maximum range of around 5,000 kilometers, the AG-600 will make its debut at the six-day Zhuhai Airshow.
