China’s controversial stealth jet has made its first flyby, giving the public and media a glimpse of the aircraft believed to be a copy of America’s F-22 and built using hacked US military blueprints.

Taking to the skies at the airshow in the southern city of Zhuhai, in Guangdong province, the J-20 stealth fighter passed by onlookers in a thunderous demonstration.

The aircraft is believed to have been built in part from plans of US war planes, obtained by Chinese hackers jailed earlier this year – a claim which Beijing has firmly denied.

Military analysts have said it is still too early to tell if the jet matches the capabilities of the US F-22 Raptor.
