China's independently-developed Wing Loong-2 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) performed a flight at the 13th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition, or Airshow China 2021, on Tuesday.

The flight demonstrated the aircraft's capabilities of autonomous take-off and landing, climbing to cruise, and air-to-ground coordination.

This is the first time that a large UAV has performed a flight at an international air show.

Indigenously developed by the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), Wing Loong-2 is a multi-purpose UAV platform with superb multi-sensor fusion capability, as well as stable performance and mature technologies.

It supported relief efforts in flood-ravaged Henan Province in July, providing real-time audio and video communications between rescue sites and the command center.
