China has confirmed that it conducted the first test-flight of a stealth fighter jet on the afternoon of Jan. 11 over an airport in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, Reuters reported. Military analysts say the test flight lasted 15 minutes. The jet, believed to be a J-20 prototype, is widely regarded as a show of muscle during US Defense Secretary Robert Gates' visit to China. 据路透社电,中国日前证实11日下午在成都某机场首次试飞隐形战斗机。军事专家称,试飞持续了约15分钟时间。据说,该飞机就是歼-20原型机,人们普遍认为,此次试飞在美国国防部长罗伯特•盖茨访华期间进行,乃是展示我国的军事力量。 
Gates said Chinese President Hu Jintao told him that the test flight, which could help narrow the military gap with the US, was not timed to coincide with his visit. But a professor at Renmin University who specializes in Sino-US relations said the test flight may have been timed to coincide with Gates' visit to signal that Beijing was not bowing before US pressure.

盖茨表示,中国国家主席胡锦涛对他说,隐形战机的试飞能够缩小中美之间的军事差距,而且试飞时间不是故意安排在他访华期间。不过中国人民大学一位研究中美关系的教授指出,歼-20的试飞也许就是故意安排在盖茨访华期间,目的在于发出一个信号,北京方面不会向美国的压力低头。
