According to reports, the supposed first flight test of J-20 was made at the Chengdu Aircraft Design Institute in southwestern part of China at around 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

Apparently, the photo showing the J-20 first flight test was said to be also posted at, the website of the Chinese Global Times newspaper, and was then re-posted at, a more commercialized Chinese website.

Reports also said that the J-20 flight testing happened a few hours before US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates met with China leader Hu Jintao.
