All of last year, we heard "there will be a surprise on February 27" then the date changed to March 23 then it changed to August 5 then it changed to September 6 then it changed to "wait until next year,"

Are you really this stupid or just being one? Handing over and First flight is two other things. First flight takes place first and then thorough process of testing and after receiving satisfying result the plane is handed over to its rightful owner.
uhm, that's exactly what @AMRAAM said...handing over is done AFTER thorough process testing.

I'm not gonna partake in the low level name calling unlike you. but don't push it.

but remember bro its not much needing such testing because of proven airframe and i know bro JFT first flew in 2003 but i am trying to say in 2007 china delivered on 2 march 2007 and PAC assembled and flew on 23 March 2007 so its quite possible that block-3 will flypast on 23 March 2021

So this is the second Block 3?

PS: Also noteworthy and against some fan-boy's claims, the JF-17 Block 3 clearly does NOT use the J-20A's HUD!

Do you think it could be the same HUD but with different framing?
so block 3 is out of the factory
If we cut metal on it about a month ago that would make sense I think. Could be wrong

Why? at Twitter he claimed "We think that this picture is taken during ACM's visit to China. We certainly don't believe that this picture is taken in Pakistan but can't say anything with absolute surety."

So IMO far from confirmed ... could also simply be the first prototype still at CAC.
