New weaponry will be demonstrated at the 10th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition, known as Airshow China, said spokesman of China Air Force Shen Jinke on Tuesday.

Some of the aircraft on display joined in a multinational anti-terror drill, dubbed "Peace Mission 2014," held in north China among the regional security group Shanghai Cooperation Organization in late August.

Stunt flying will be performed by five female fighter pilots from the China Air Force with J-10 fighters, along with aerobatics teams from the Republic of Korea and the United Arab Emirates, Shen said.

An international conference on military aviation training exchanges is scheduled for the event by the Air Force and the Aviation Industry Corporation of China.

Airshow China is the only international aerospace trade show endorsed by the Chinese central government. Since 1996, the show has been held in Zhuhai every two years.
