A Chinese-built aquatic aircraft, which some say is the biggest in the world, has recently completed its maiden flight in the country.

The AG600 completed take-off and landing tests on Sunday; the aircraft completed tests on water in the Chinese province of Hubei.

The aircraft was reported to have flown in the air for 15 minutes before landing.

The AG600 was built by state-owned company, Aviation Industry Corporation of China.
