Looks like the Georgia Air National Guard is transitioning to J-20s.
First plane has already arrived at Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport.

But seriously, probably just a movie prob:

What Appears To Be A Fake Chinese J-20 Allegedly Spotted At U.S. Base

Bizarre indeed.

Hory sheeet, i's reckon them Chicoms actually took over, wtf...
Which movie in production would currently need this prop? Hollywood is fully capable of housing such a prop. If it flew there, certainly not a prop then.

A likely scenario is a yet to be determined visit of a Chinese dignitary. Could be generals here for a discussion with counterparts, an agriculture minister for some economic review with his counterpart. But where did they hop in from?? Not going g from their East to our East without hopping or a tanker stop mid air(kinda still a hop??)

So the question is, was it a mid air refuel or was there a South/Central American layover?? Perhaps a carrier backed by that Iranian navy off the Atlantic coast so long ago promised yet wholely unfulfilled.


i dare you dare you double triple dare you to speculate, investigate, and convey your theories right here.

The TopGun sequel probably as the article suggests. The Air Dominance Center at Savannah would work as a stand in for a Chinese airbase.
Something directly related to the actual program would not show up in the open on some random civilian airport with a meager military presence during daylight hours.

Its almost certainly a mockup, not a flyable aircraft.

No way man, that's the cover story. The Chicoms took over. They own the movies too you know. The handlers are here to whip their DNC minion servants into shape for being incapable of confiscating all the guns. Just wait until they start parachuting into your neighborhood and the police say "nothing to worry about or see here folks, it's just a movie" which then evolves into 'joint international exercises'.

It's going to happen if we let those donkeys gain control I'm telling you.

I have to give it to you, you coaxed a hearty chuckle out of me, an impressive feat considering the incredibly bad day lost a friend to his own hands so I’ve been in the dumps since I got the news, thanks for the laugh.


Interesting perhaps for the top gun 2 movie? The only huge budget movie in the pipeline that I know of that might make use of the prop. Funny thing about TG2 it’s not slated to release until summer 2020 and already has a 6/10 on IMDB goes to show that internet reviews are a funny thing.

ETA- Damn mighty beat me to the guess on it being a topgun 2 prop, great minds and what not.

Top gun 2 movie better be ready for talk, better have decent actors and actresses, needs to be action packed and out of the middle east.

Would Pompeo or another dignitary similar to him fly into Beijing in an F-22?

No they would be escorting whatever plane he takes. Vice versa.

Only if he knows how to fly one or is willing to ride in a travel pod.

I’m down for him being in a travel pod, they can be jettisoned right?

I don’t buy the movie prop angle. I read on another sight none of the filming is being done anywhere near where the pic was taken.

However, if we really did have a J20, there’s no way it would be left outside in plain view.

Doesn’t make sense....

Not we’re there be anyway for a J20 to to end up in nato hands it’s not exported (yet anyway)and wouldn’t be a war capture so neither of our traditional ways of getting adversary aircraft are possible.

China has stated so long as we are not selling our best fighter (now F-22, future PCA), then they will not export their best fighter (J-20). Normally, I'd just roll my eyes and say,'yeah, right.' However, I'd have to say this time its in their interest as well. The J-20 probably will not be sold over seas. The FC-31 probably will be. Note: J-31/J-XY/FC-31 may have a lot in common, but may not end up being the same plane. Or it might be the equivalent of the F-35, but rather than the FC being a VSTOL, it would be an export version (J-31: PLAAF, J-XY: PLAN, FC-31: export).

Yeah I know they say they won’t export it but I wouldn’t be surprised at all if it’s on the market in the next 5 years.
