Friday, 14 October 2011:
JH-7 (FBC-1) Fei Bao. 814 Red.
CFTE (China Flight Test Establishment), PLAAF.
10:47 AM, after air demo, while RTB and turning at 500 m AGL, dived, and crashed, about two klicks west of spectators' area, at the CIGAC (China International General Aviation Convention), at Nei Fu AP, Pu Cheng County, Wei Nan City, Shaan Xi Province.
Crash site was a clearing/swamp in-between three villages: Dong Lou Village, Gao Jia Village, and Yao Wu Village; Dang Lu Town, Pu Cheng County.

Two pilots.
One pilot (probably WSO) ejected, and OK. One pilot MIA.

No ground casualty.

Other air demo continued. 8(
(IMO, like the Wen Zhou hi-speed train crash, Chicom accident cleaning/clearing is so efficient.)
First press conference at 3 PM on same day.
