The single-aisle C919 aircraft made its international debut this week at the Singapore Airshow, featuring in both flying and on-the-ground displays in a bid to woo international buyers.

The plane, made by the state-owned Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China is a potential competitor to the market-leading A320 made by Europe's Airbus and the 737 MAX from US-based Boeing.

More than 1,000 exhibitors from over 50 countries and regions are taking part in the Singapore Air Show. The event will continue through 25th February.
