Incidentally, what precisely is Chinese in ACAC ARJ21? It is mostly Mad Dog Trunkliner... and I think the wing is Antonov.

Dachang is an interesting place... shall ARJ21 show up in Paris? It did not fly by Zhuhai.

This link gives EIS date, with Shandong, by end of 2009. The export customers, I think, are GECAS and Lao Air.

The plane is delayed anyway: see

The 90-seat aircraft's first flight was originally scheduled for March

More delays. See:
http://www.flightglobal.com/articles/2008/12/19/320328/chinas-arj21-faces-further-six-month-delay-in-first.html

Mid-2010... this means, what two and a half years total delay?
