ex-PLA Air Force Shenyang J-5  0101
(China Aviation Museum, Datangshan - 31 January 2002)

This may look like just another MiG, but, in Chinese terms at least, it is probably the most significant aircraft in the entire museum, a fact represented by its pride of place position in the tunnel display. It is in fact the first aircraft of the first batch of Shenyang J-5s (the Chinese-manufactured version of the MiG-17) to be produced, and as such was the very first jet aircraft to ever be built in China, and the beginning of the country's aircraft manufacturing industry.
