    SHANGHAI, China - China's first fully homegrown commercial aircraft, the ARJ-21, rolled off the production line Friday, marking a major step in the country's aviation program.

    The manufacturer says the ARJ-21 is expected to grab up to 60 percent of the domestic market for mid-size regional airliners over the next 20 years.
    China will need about 900 mid-sized regional jets over the next two decades, the company estimates, as economic growth drives an expansion of air travel and airlines look for planes best tailored to feeder routes.

    I won't fly Russian made planes, totally terrifying experience....and I will never fly a Chinese made plane either. The Chinese can't even make safe toys, why would they make a better plane....cheaper is better for them...who cares about the quality?

    Bet it won't be a big seller in America.

    They sure got a bad reputation in the US during 2007 over pet food and toys. Very few people here trust "MADE IN CHINA" products of any kind.
