SHANGHAI -- Final assembly of the first Chinese developed commercial jet,the ARJ-21, began Friday morning in Shanghai with the first 90-seater plane expected to roll out of the workshop at the end of the year.
The copy of KAWASAKI-HEAVY INDUS. High speed train SHINNKANNSEN HAVE HAD ACCIDENT NEAR Shanghai,
286 people die(officially 38 people die only), 5carrige-100people each carriages-had crashed to other high speed train with 112km/h, and
fell off a high place to ground on 22nd of July about 7pm.
The Chinese engineers copy the drawing plan 7 years ago from Kawasaki-Heavy Inc. as Kawasaki asked to make a part of carriage in China.
As there is serious failer, and Chinese authority had berried those carriage in the ground in 23rd, next day of accident,
The crash of two Chinese bullet trains is, first and foremost, a human tragedy. The ordeal of Xiang Weiyi, a two-year-old girl who lay for 21 hours in the twisted wreckage near the corpses of her parents, has transfixed China's public.
Many rail experts have warned that China's rush to build the world's longest and fastest high speed rail network in record time was a recipe for disaster.
As well as proving them tragically right, this crash ends Beijing's ambitions to sell its nascent high-speed rail technology to the world, at least for the foreseeable future.
Compare that to Japan, where the bullet train network has not had any big accidents involving injuries or deaths since it started running in 1964, based by Kawasaki and Sumitomo Indus,
They were the ones who spoke out the loudest about safety concerns in China and the Chinese rail industry's industrial scale coping of rail technology bought over the past decade from foreign companies such as japan, Germany's Siemens, France's Alstom and Canada's Bombardier.
The foreign rail companies have long complained that trains meant to fun at up to 200kph(124mph) have been copied, modified and then made to run at speeds for which they were never designed, potentially compromising their safety.
Most Chinese refused to ride on China"s high-speed trains because of safety concerns.
Given the serious questions that hang over the provenance of China's high-speed rail technology, it seems unlikely that any other country will risk the lives of its citizens on imprted Chinese bullet trains, no matter how cheap they are.
The domestically-developed ARJ-21, meaning "advanced regional jet for the 21st century", has given China a late but powerful presence in its own commercial aviation market, which up until now has been dominated by foreign aircraft manufacturers such as Boeing and Airbus.
The ARJ-21's maiden flight is scheduled for March 2008(?) and mass production of the aircraft will begin in 2009(?), according to China Aviation Industry Corporation I (AVIC I), developer of the jet.
The market for the regional jet in China is expected to be around 700 by 2020, according to AVIC I.
"I am confident that the ARJ-21 will become the best regional jet in the world and give passengers a safe(?) and comfortable flight experience," the ARJ-21's chief designer, Wu Guanghui, told Xinhua.
But probably the bigger damage to perciptions will be done in China, where on Monday one citizen microbloger summed up the sentiment in a widely circulated posting:"Today's China is a bullet train racing though a thunderstorm - and we are all passengers on board."
