The Chinese train CRH380A has set a new speed record during its trial run. The sleek train moved at a speed of 486.1 kilometers per hour, which is quite similar to a jet plane at low speed.

In an earlier trial run held in September 2010, the train CRH380A set a speed record of 416.6 km/h. In breaking its own previous feat, the train is considered to be the major achievement of China's high-speed train technology.
