China has showcased its long-awaited J-20 stealth fighter in public for the first time.

Two of the radar-evading jets performed a 60-second flypast at the Zhuhai air show in Guangdong province – the country’s biggest meeting of plane makers and buyers.

Previously the jets had only been seen by bloggers.

The fighters are being seen as symbol of Beijing’s desire to modernise and upgrade its military capabilities.
