The first C-919 takes off to compete with Airbus and Boeing

The C-919, the first large mid-range passenger aircraft built in China to compete in a market dominated by Airbus and Boeing, has made its first official flight this Friday. The device, manufactured by China's public corporation Corporación Aeronáutica Comercial, has taken off from Pudong International Airport in Shanghai on a test flight of one and a half hours.

The plane, white with blue and green stripes, was tested at an altitude of 3,000 meters - some 7,000 meters below normal on a regular trip - and at a speed of about 300 kilometers (186 miles) per hour.
