MALAYSIA, March 12 (ChinaMil) -- Seven J-10 fighters of the Bayi Aerobatic Team under the Air Force of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLAAF) arrived at the Langkawi Airport of Malaysia on March 11 to participate in the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA). This is the second time for the Bayi Aerobatic Team to give stunt shows in a foreign country after their debut at the Moscow Air Show in 2013.

   The seven J-10 fighters as well as two IL-76 transport aircraft responsible for piloting and supporting tasks departed from an airport of the PLAAF in southwest China on the morning of March 11, and arrived at the Langkawi Airport of Malaysia after making a stopover at an air base of the Royal Thai Air Force for refueling.

   The all-weather supersonic multi-purpose J-10 fighters is independently developed by China. The seven J-10 fighters used by the Bayi Aerobatic Team have been partially modified and completely repainted. They mainly undertake such tasks as flight show and aircraft performance demonstration in foreign exchange activities.

   The basic mission of the aerobatic teams of various countries is to give fully play to their aircraft's performance, showcase the excellent flight skills of their pilots, and expand and deepen the exchanges and cooperation among air forces of different countries through their aerobatics performance, said Senior Colonel Cao Zhen, deputy commander of an aviation division of the PLAAF.

   The Bayi Aerobatic Team will stage four stunt shows at the LIMA from March 17 to 21 for local people and international visitors, according to Colonel Cao Zhenzhong, leader of the aerobatic team.

   Visitors to the LIMA will have opportunities to watch the aerobatic performance given by four Chinese girls. This is the first time for the PLAAF to dispatch its female fighter pilots for flight shows abroad.
