Fourth prototype of China's C919 jet completes first test flight-media

SINGAPORE, Aug 1 (Reuters) - The fourth prototype of China’s home-built C919 narrowbody passenger jet completed its first test flight on Thursday, state media said, as the country pushes forward with a homegrown rival to Airbus SE and Boeing Co planes.

The test flight in Shanghai lasted for 1 hour and 25 minutes, the People’s Daily reported on its Twitter account.

The third C919 prototype conducted its first test flight in December. (Reporting by Jamie Freed; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
