Woohoo, China now has one large floating target too. So the hell what, it'll take years to make it r ...

The pilots train on a land based stationary "mock up" which neither pitches or rolls as a floating deck does

Ziomoron this is real aircraft carrier , not mock up

what i'm saying ziomoron is they will learn on real  thing , what is hurry anyhow?

So... no photos of the keels being laid down of original, P.R. Chinese designed and built, carriers and/or other naval vessals?  One capital ship is nice, but more are better when creating a fleet that will be truly "blue water".

Italians have the know how and experince for carrier ops, and the F-35 has impressive flexibility  ...


and here is a little info for ya to step off your Superpower Empire's high horse...ever heard of the saying;
The Dragon Takes Flight...

Wang Zhu was born in Beijing and joined the Chinese Naval Academy at age 12. At 16, he was among the first group of Chinese naval cadets sent to Britain to learn Western technology...

At Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1914, he studied aeronautical engineering, this was the first such program in the US, having been set up by J. Hunsacker that very year...

Wang graduated in June 1916 and learned to fly at the Flying Boat School of the Curtiss Company in Buffalo, NY. After that he went to Seattle and was hired by Conrad Westervelt and William Boeing where he started work on a design that would become the Model C, the company’s FIRST commercially successful airplane.

Two weeks after its maiden flight in April 1917, Pacific Aero Products was renamed the Boeing Airplane Company. Wang was paid all of $50.77 for his work. He returned to China where he was hired by Tan Gen.

Wang Zhu would only get credit for designing Boeing's first commercially successful aircraft decades later...
his accomplishments are documented in a display at The Museum of Flight in Seattle and at the Boeing Historical Archives...

His bronze portrait at the Museum of Flight was sponsored by
The Boeing Company, the Boeing Asian American Professional
Association, the Society of Chinese American Aerospace Engineers,
the Chinese Institute of Engineers /USA-Seattle, the Cheng
Kung University Alumni Association and the Beihang University
Alumni Association

I suspect it is uniquely different than that of other countries in armaments but we will have to wait for that kind of information.  
What's on your mind...
