China announced Monday it has completed its first-ever large passenger jet.
The chairman of China's state-backed aerospace manufacturer COMAC called the unveiling of the jet a "significant milestone." It's a big step in China's plan to become a major aircraft manufacturer that will eventually compete with Boeing and Airbus. (Video via CCTV)
