China Lands J-15 Jet on Liaoning Aircraft Carrier

China has successfully landed a jet fighter on its new aircraft carrier for the first time, officials say.

A Chinese-made J-15 fighter landed on the 300m (990ft) former Soviet carrier during recent exercises, China’s defence ministry said on Sunday.

The Liaoning, China’s first aircraft carrier, entered into service in September.

China says the vessel has had extensive sea trials and will increase its capacity to defend state interests.

Analysts say the aircraft carrier will allow Beijing to help project its military might in territorial disputes.

    Back in 1941 American pundits were claiming that Jap pilots didn’t have the visual acuity to land their planes on the deck of an aircraft carrier—-these same ignorant bastards were also claiming the Arizona could never be sunk, too…….SUR…..PRIIIIIIIZE!!! China already owns the United States and essentially everything you see on a store shelf is made in China…so I can see America trying to get “tough” with China. What a joke.

    Bob, you are correct. Remember Tibet? It no longer exists as a nation. Why? China. Peace,
