By the end of WW2 several Boeing B-29s had to divert to Vladivostok during combat actions against Japan; they were never returned by the Russians. Instead Tupolev developed the Tu-4, which is seen here in an AEW version

This was one of the relatively few aircraft at Datangshan for which it was easy to get a nice side on shot. Nevertheless, I picked this one out as it shows off nicely the unusual lines of this magnificent aircraft. Note turboprops have replaced the piston engines present on the B-29 original.

An extraordinary machine by any standard. In 1967, China attempted to develop its first AEW platform based on the Tu-4 airframe with AI-20 turboprop engines. The project was named KJ-1, with a Type 843 rotor-dome on top. However, the equipment was too heavy and failed to meet PLAAF requirements so the project was cancelled in 1971
