MA700 blended wing body strength test completed

A 100% ultimate load test, the last important item on its lengthy check list, marks the successful completion of the MA700's blended wing body strength testing.

As an important research test, the blended wing body test consists of 13 test items under seven conditions. Successful testing gives effective assessments on the MA700's center fuselage, main wing structure, wing body, and main landing gear connection area, and provides powerful support for the optimization of important parts' structure, weight reduction, and drawings-related issues.

It will also release risks ahead of the total aircraft static test.
