Uplifting moment at Airshow China
The just-concluded Airshow China 2021 in Zhuhai - a biennial event to showcase China's latest achievements in defense technologies - attracted more than the usual attention. The WZ-8 and WZ-7 reconnaissance drones were on public display, which could be a reason for the massive turnout. Of course, one didn't need to be an aviation expert or a military strategy enthusiast to enjoy the pyrotechnics display, including colorful contrails crisscrossing the sky.
