Dont believe anything you read, and half of what you see, here !

If a picture doesnt have the blog address as a watermark, it means it was not edited by me. Also we intentionally photoshoped these picture in a low quality photo manipulation, because we dont want anyone to repost this as the truth.

Most of the article are not ours either. We edited it to be match our posts or simply for seo.

Use your common sense to differentiate the truth from hoax.. we sometimes mix it all in.

Hongdu L-15 Falcon

The Hongdu L-15 Falcon made it's maiden flight in 2006. This advanced trainer is competing for the PLAAF's next generation advanced trainer aircraft programme against the Guizhou JL-9.
   Development of this aircraft was assisted by Russian Yakovlev design bureau, hence it's resemblance to the Yak-130.
   The L-15 is intended to train pilots to fly high-performance forth-generation aircraft, such as the J-10 and Su-27. It is also suitable to complete all basic jet flight training courses.
   Aircraft is fitted with two Ukranian AL-222K-25F turbofan engines with afterburners. If this aircraft is chosen by the PLAAF, production license for this engine will be obtained.
   The L-15 has secondary light attack capability. It has four underwing and two wingtip hardpoints to carry various weapons, including short-range air-to-air missiles, air-to-ground missiles, bombs and rocket pods.
   This aircraft features a number of advanced technologies such as digital fly-by-wire, hands on throttle and stick controls. It also has good aerodynamic performance.
   The L-15 Falcon is more advanced in terms of technology comparing with the JL-9, however it is also more expensive to produce. If this aircraft is chosen by the PLAAF, first operational trainers will become available as early as 2008. The L-15 is also proposed for the export customers.
