China's second homegrown firefighting amphibious aircraft, the AG600M, made its maiden flight from land in Zhuhai, South China's Guangdong province, on Sept 10, which marked Mid-Autumn Festival this year.

Piloted by a four-member crew, the plane took off from Zhuhai Jinwan Airport at 9:36 am, flew for about 22 minutes and landed back at the airport. The aircraft will undergo follow-up test flights. Meanwhile, the other AG600M seaplane taxied on a reservoir from Jingmen Zhanghe Airport in Central China's Hubei province at 9:38 am before taking off.
