Liaoning carried out flight operations in South China Sea

China says its J-15 carrier-borne fighters flew over South China Sea for the first time on Jan. 2, one week after the carrier and her escorts rounded Taiwan and docked in Hainan.


The People’s Liberation Army said the flight operations were carried in difficult weather conditions and the ship’s various helicopters participated in the drill as well.

The captain of Liaoning, Liu Zhe, said the J-15 carried out mid-air refueling exercises.
