China sent its homegrown large passenger plane C919 into sky on Friday, becoming one of the world's top makers of jumbo aircraft.

The flight makes China the fourth jumbo jet producer after the United States, Europe and Russia. It also marks a milestone for the Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC), the Shanghai-based manufacturer of C919.
