China's Second Stealth Fighter Getting Ready for Its First Flight

Just a quick update on China's stealth fighter program. We've all seen the pictures that emerged recently of second J-20 stealth fighter, dubbed 2002, sitting alongside the first J-20, 2001, on the flight line at Chengdu -- something that indicates a test flight imminent. Well, here are some pics showing good ole 2002 making a very high-speed taxi run. As you can see, she reached a high enough speed that her nose wheel lifted off the ground and had to use the drogue parachute to come to a halt.

Enjoy.
