The first Chinese-made airplane with passengers flew on Sunday. It is a C919 plane, made by COMAC. China's president called the C919 a "triumph of Chinese innovation". A passenger said: "The flight was very smooth and comfortable". He said he would remember it with happiness.
COMAC hopes to be like Boeing and Airbus. It started making the C919 in 2008. In 2022, it was allowed to fly passengers in China. COMAC will make 150 planes each year for the next five years. It has more than 1,000 orders from Chinese airlines. It hopes to get orders from other countries too.
