According to "China Space News" reported that long dipropionate rocket Jiaokai Min, deputy commander, said "This year in September to November, the Long March II C rocket launch task to be performed four times at three stations launch two satellite launch center. "According to the current public record launch in September to November China launched a total of three No. 2 C rocket Long March, this may be a side December 2 2 C Long March rocket evidence. Description The launch delayed slightly longer than the scheduled time.
In addition, the microblogging Taiyuan residents photographed sky particular scene, a meandering "cloud band" hanging in the sky, the scene with the ground residents this year August 7 WU-14 emissions testing observed The scene is very similar.
It is speculated that three similar tests conducted so far, China's hypersonic aircraft are launched by a Long March 2 C carrier rocket, according to the edge of the atmosphere, " Qian trajectory "in the upper atmosphere a" bad deal "type of flight , due to the aircraft's unique aerodynamic design, its speed will not significantly attenuated, but remains about 7-8 times the speed of sound "gliding" flight. The first two trials, the aircraft flight direction and placement are presumably in western China traditions range missile tests, this should be no exception.
China has passed the third test aircraft WU-14 China held its third flight test of a new hypersonic aircraft gliding WU-14. As the representative of the Ministry of Defense of China, have passed the test this week as part of a strategic nuclear program in China, reports the newspaper "Sight" with reference to The Washington Free Beacon.
According to the publication, the new development is able to overcome missile defense (BMD) USA. The newspaper also reports that during the test flight WU-14 observed the US intelligence services. In January 2014 the US media quoted Pentagon reported that China conducted the first flight test of a new hypersonic aircraft gliding. Then the media reported that, "officials said, hypersonic, apparently designed to run on one of the intercontinental ballistic missiles, to then toward the goal of near-Earth space close he could plan and develop speed up to ten times superior speed sound. "
Later, in July 2014, it was reported that China is developing a hypersonic cruise missile jet in addition to hypersonic planner machine WU-14. It has been reported that the Chinese development is similar to the experimental hypersonic unmanned aerial vehicle X-43, developed by NASA. According to published information, the Chinese missile can reach speeds of 8 thousand. Miles per hour.

Foolish assumption IMO. What I mean is that after ww2 the US obtained german technology and kept our black ops projects well hidden from the public eye in the decades to follow. In 1993, Ben Rich, VP at Lockheed Martin Skunkworks gave a speech at UCLA and said that "we now have the technology to take ET home". Sure other countries can equal our technology, but this missile isn't an example of that. Peace

Thanks for posting but I just want to clear one thing up .. I do not believe that it travels 8 times the speed of light . Perhaps a simple error was made and maybe you had meant to say 8 times the speed of sound ?

If the Pentagon is calling them a "serious threat" I would assume that these missiles are fast enough to dodge or out run our defenses? How long does it take a Mach 8 missile to go from China to the USA?
