    Indeed. During the six-month maintenance and modification period, not only the bridge but also the flight deck of the aircraft carrier Liaoning was modified. The image on top shows the Liaoning before renovation, while the image in the middle shows it after the modification. For comparison on the bottom, also the aircraft carrier 002 is added. Also the painting of the flight deck of Liaoning has been changed too.

    Looks like they can now savely park one plane at the aft.

    I think, now three of the four aft starbord parking positions are behind the fool line. The fool line itself remains the same as before. It doesn't change to the variant of 002, which is closer to the runway except where the arresting wires are located.

    A couple of high-resolution images of Liaoning. The first one is a newly released old photo.

    It looks larger because the camera was close to ground level when the picture was taken.

    To be honest so I did I

    I take back my words that’s outstanding

    Carrier replenishment is very important for long range operations

    A massive step up and move forward

    Now let’s see those new Z18 variants lifting some loads for vertical resuplly

    Each Type 901 should get 2 x Z18 with uprated engines for this sole purpose
