ZHUHAI, Guangdong, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Ahead of the 13th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition, China's independently developed AG600 large amphibious aircraft is getting ready to perform its first airshow flight at the upcoming Airshow China.

Code-named Kunlong, the AG600 is a key piece of aeronautical equipment in China's emergency rescue system.

It successfully completed its maiden flight from land in 2017, its first takeoff from a water reservoir in 2018, and its first sea takeoff in 2020.
