In addition to aircraft, devices capable of getting out of the Earth's atmosphere were also showcased in Zhuhai. CGTN Digital explored China's first hybrid-propellant rocket, and computers and chips used for China's rockets and space station.

As China finishes the construction of its space station, a full-size model was also displayed at the airshow. Our reporters checked the inside of the model, which is also furnished like the one currently in orbit.

The airshow is not only a place for performances. It's also a market where business people place multi billion-dollar orders. Contracts worth nearly 40 billion U.S. dollars were signed during the show, including orders for 300 C919 airliners.

The next airshow is planned for November 12-17, 2024.
