Chinese passenger jet C919 takes on Boeing and Airbus

I found these interesting pictures of a new Chinese commercial jet. It will be in the same class as the Boeing 737 and the equivalent Airbus. According to the article, most of the planes will be sold to Chinese airlines. I wonder if it will be sold in the US? I have flown on American, European, Dutch, Canadian, and Brazilian aircraft. It will be fun to ad Chinese to the list. The article said that many of the critical components are made by Western companies. I imagine that it won't be long until they are all Chinese made.
