4th Div was disbanded as a fighter division in 2003, with 10th Regiment going to 30th Division as 89th.
4th Div was re-established as a transport division at Qionglai in 2004.

When the 12th Regiment at Dalian converted to transport duties fighter operations went to 90th Regiment.

While reconstruction of Qionglai took place 2009-2012, aircraft were rebased to Chengdu-Taipingsi and Leizhuang.

4th Division is the first unit to introduce the new Y9.

The Beijing MR Training Base itself was established on 26 October 1988 when the 17th Division (serials 3xx8x) was reorganized.
Although yet unconfirmed it seems the J7IIs have been replaced by J7E or J7G.

For psychological operations 20th Division uses Y8XZ ('New High 7') aircraft that are optimised to broadcast radio and tv signals in non-friendly environments. Before 2012 the Regiment was subordinated to 10th Division.

In 1988 Jinan MRTB/1st Reg was formed from 31st Div/91st Reg that had operated from Yancheng earlier.
Jinan MRTB was merged with Nanjing MRTB, with 34th Regiment (serials 20x3x) being formed at Wendeng from Jinan MRTB/1st Reg from Xuzhou, that earlier had operated from Xintai.
The J7IIs were replaced by J7G around 2012/2013.
With the arrival of the J10 at Qihe the Regiment was renumbered 36th Regiment and the J7Gs were reserialled (accordingly).
It is believed the Regiment obtained J10A aircraft by 2016.

The last J7 version produced by Chengdu was the J7G which can still be found within four Regiments, like 36th Regiment that only recently replaced J7II with this version.

The major 2012 reorganization was preluded a few years earlier by a concentration of CJ6 Regiments in 7th Flying Academy and JL8 Regiments in 3rd Flying Academy (effectively swapping two regiments). The 3rd Div JL8 at Changchun-Dafangshen in 2011 used to fly under 7th Flying Academy command. Since 2012 it flies with a 4x5x serial as could be observed in the annual local airshow.
