For years, Made In China meant be weary of quality. And, while there are still many manufacturing plants that require close supervision and policing to make sure the quality is acceptable, China entered a new era with the maiden flight recently of the China’s large passenger jet C919. The flight lasted around 2 hours testing the performance of the C919 major systems and equipment, such as taking-off and landing, navigation and communication, speed acceleration and deceleration.
