外文标题：China's showpiece fighter jet crashes on test flight; 7 hurt
BEIJING: At least seven persons were injured when an advanced Chinese multi-role fighter jet crashed into a residential compound during a test flight in the country's southwest.
The pilot ejected safely but at least seven persons received burn injuries after the jet struck a newly constructed residential building before plunging into an artificial lake inside the compound at Chengdu in Sichuan province, on Saturday.
The jet, operated by the Chengdu military command and said to be a prototype of an advanced Jian 10-B fighter, may have been on a test flight, Hong Kong based South China Morning Post reported on Sunday.
Staff at the hospital refused to comment on the condition of the victims, the report said.
The cause of the accident was not yet reported. The crash site is just 10km northwest of the central commercial district of Chengdu, which is also very close to an air force base.

Reliability will be an issue with Chinese crafts..... This only shows insufficient test runs with these crafts.
