Is it possible to have a private thread running open only to a limited set of people so that private details can be shared?[/QUOTE]
I would suggest you contact taimikhan and see if the facility can be provided in one of the fora.
Whatever the case, it shows a certain lack of experience on the part of PAF/CATIC. So lets see what happens.

1 - If politics had been the case, they wouldn't had invited PAF the first place. Even if this bird wouldn't fly, this would be showcased among other aircrafts of similar class which wouldn't stop potential clients to take interest and evaluate it in terms of specs.
2 - Regarding Pakistan/China worrying about cost of flying aircrafts - Its not even 0.1% likely.
3 - Safety Concerns? We are talking of an air-craft that is in serial production. Its not the alpha beta version that couldn't be cleared for safety reasons.
Having said that, I can take that in terms of Insurance though. Not sure if that became the reason for not letting it fly either.
this show happens after 2 years so there was ample time to get all the information & make preparations
the craft is for the 3rd world low budget market so the western companies have nothing to fear a low cost an untested and unproven platform.
every reason explaining the failure to make the flight display will only prove the incompitance & bad management
we can only speculate
no one know the real reason . . . . . . .
and the one know will not leak it . . . . . . . . .
so whats the point of argument . . . . . . .?????

ACM will be there as well and i still believe that it will fly otherwise why ACM is going? to market the aircraft?
Time will tell.....
why JF-17 not flyong at airshow? Its russian engine thats causing problem. Dint yor hear recently about russia blocking export of jf-17 with rd-93 engine? CATIC(China) wants to market jf-17 with their engine but the air display with rd-93 engine? Russians are not happy with china. So catic told PAF ..sorry sir no air display! Lets see still keeping finger crossed.. someone from show can post the marketing brochure of jf-17 to validate my theory!
