This was photo-shopped to something below and a story was weaved out of the below pics
Here is what really happened
The ejection stills are a fake. The Flanker took off without a canopy and with its rear seat removed, but nobody ever ejected from that aircraft. The pictures showing the ejection are obviously photo shopped, they are of a different Flanker which is sitting on the ground.
Many Chinese bloggers are known to do this.

Pakistan Army rogue Generals can take diamonds and rubies also as bribes
No matter how hard they try, successive governments are unable to keep disgraced nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan quiet. In an interview he gave to German publication Der Spiegel last week, Khan claimed that he was made a scapegoat by Musharraf and the army. Soon after, a letter, obviously leaked by Khan himself, was published by The Washington Post which was purportedly from a North Korean scientist saying that former army chief Jehangir Karamat had been paid $3 million and another general, Zulfiqar Khan, would soon be paid in diamonds and rubies. Both the now-retired officers have vehemently denied that they received anything or were even involved. In the past, questions had been raised of how Dr Khan could be involved in the sale of nuclear material to other countries without some involvement/consent by the military establishment.
Musharraf may have dismissed Dr Khan’s clandestine network as a ‘one-man show’ but it would be unlikely for one individual to be so well-connected and independent to have been doing this on his own, especially given that the organisation he used to head is a part of the ministry of defence and the military has close control of the nuclear weapons programme. This may perhaps explain why, when the issue boiled over during General Musharraf’s rule, Dr Khan was practically forced to appear on television to confess, then pardoned the very next day, and then kept under wraps for the next few years.
WASHINGTON: In response to charges by Pakistan’s nuclear scientist Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan that North Korea bribed senior Pakistani military officials for nuclear secrets in the 1990s, the now-retired military men have rubbished the report, saying the report is “totally false.”
According to the Washington Post, the nuclear scientist released a copy of a letter from a North Korean official, dated 1998, which gives details of the transfer of $3 million to former army chief Jehangir Karamat, and $500,000 and some jewelry to another military official, Lt-Gen Zulfiqar Khan.
“I was not in the loop for any kind of influence and I would have to be mad to sanction transfer of technology and for Dr Khan to listen to me,” Karamat told Reuters in an email. Zulfiqar Khan also denied the accusation.

“I have not read the story,” Khan told Reuters, “but of course it is wrong.”
Post reported that the officials in turn approved the transfer of information to Pyongyang. The letter appears to be signed by North Korean Workers Party Secretary Jon Byong, the newspaper said. While western intelligence officials say the letter is authentic.

And the Z-8 in the photo is probably the AC313, China's first independently developed civilian medium-lift helicopter. AC313 is a 13.8t helicopter with a carrying capacity of 27 passengers or 15 wounded with stretchers. The maximum range is 900km (ca. 559 miles). China once announced that AC-313 is the first indigenous copter to fly on high-altitude area excpet U.S. Black-Hawk.

China's so called peaceful rise :).....China intends to use its military might far beyond its borders
This huge ship – nearly three times the size of Britain's sole remaining carrier, HMS Illustrious – was originally built in the Soviet Union.
Still under construction when communism collapsed, it was bought by a Hong Kong company, which claimed it was going to tow the ship to Macau and turn it into a floating hotel and casino.
China had already converted two former Soviet aircraft carriers into gambling dens, so this was not as far-fetched as it sounded, but the third ship never reached Macau. It was taken to Dalian, painted in the colours of the People's Liberation Army Navy and fitted with a flight deck and new guns and missiles.
For years, China's spokesmen kept insisting that the ship was still going to be a casino, but last Wednesday the Chief of the General Staff came clean on the world's worst-kept military secret.
In plain view, behind Ikea, is the first unambiguous sign that China intends to project its military power far beyond its own shores.
Senior officers in Beijing insist that they would never use the aircraft carrier for such a task, even though that is the only thing aircraft carriers are good for.
It is true that we will not wake up tomorrow to see Chinese jets streaking overhead. American military power still dwarfs China's. The USA has 11 carrier groups, while China is still building its first; and, by China's own admission, American technology is 20 years ahead.
Even so, since the Nineties, China has been rolling back America's reach in the western Pacific. When historians a century from now look back on China's rise to global power, the carrier behind the Ikea store may stand out as the turning point.
Five years ago, I started writing my book Why The West Rules – For Now. In it I argued that geography has been the ultimate force behind Western success, but I calculated that if levels of development increase across the 21st Century at the same pace as they did in the 20th, East Asian wealth and power will catch up with the West's around the year 2100.
It is only seven months since my book came out, but last week's events suggest strongly that the East is, in fact, gaining ground even faster than I predicted. The next few years may be the most important since the end of the Cold War.
For 300 years, the West has enjoyed an enormous military lead over the rest, but this is now being eroded – because the West is going broke.
