    Haven't you seen it already from Icloo's post?
    I don't know if this was taken en route to Hainan, but it is CV-17 from the look of the island and I counted 6 J-15s on board.

    @Sczepan, now I realize that you might have meant that you have seen 6 J-15s by "to be seen". But then I realized that you must have meant the opposite because you said "six". I am not native speaker, all I was taught in school was that "to be" means "not yet". So please forgive me if I miss-interpreted your post. :)

    You can see the mysterious sailless submarine near the LCACs and the Yuan Wang ship.

    So what’s left for CV-16?

    CV-17 can use up all the airwing of CV-16 when the latter is in maintenance, & when CV-17 is the one that is docked the type 001 will use the same airwing.

    your welcome - I am also not native english speaker, so the interpretation should be my mistake …
