    Interesting, to see, but if as annouced a part replaced by J-16 in this case almost sure shelters build right now theseA-5 bases don' t have, so this will be a clue with last serials numbers on much aicrafts not identifiable for me Sat View is the solution but udapted maximum 1 - 2 times by year... or i hope infos reliable luckily found remains certain much more easy to know retirement of old A-5 than introduction of new J-16 !

    google translation of the paragraph
    from
    空军首个机动雷达营列装新型装备 紧贴实战提升战斗力
    2017-05-16 17:58:05 http://www.guancha.cn/military-affairs/2017_05_16_408639.shtml

    :
    "Observer network military commentators said that China's radar technology has entered a "blowout" period. The mobile and its equipped with a new type of radar, just reform the tide of the army in the "tip of the iceberg." Only in the 2016 Zhuhai air show, China exhibited JY-26, JY-27A, YLC-8B and a series of anti-stealth capability of large active phased array radar. Any one of these is in line with the advanced radar described above, enough to set up an advanced anti-stealth air defense radar network in any country. We have reason to believe that in the world peace-loving people "along the way", will inevitably have the shadow of the Chinese radar guard."

    exactly, but that "unprofessional" rolling inverted over an airplane full of crew??? that's gonna get old real fast, now that Commander Trump is at the Helm,,,, somebody's gonna push their luck too far, the fact that such "stoopidity" has thus far not resulted in losing an airplane is fortunate, but if this behavior continues there does come a point where you start to escort these bird with an F-22 just for deterrence, and somebody's gonna get their radar "smoked".

    This is not the BHO administration, this isn't even the GWB administration, there will be consequences for that type of "reckless" behavior, it was funny on "Top Gun", but this ain't "Top Gun"!

    Brat, the Chinese air force and navy have operated like this and will continue to do so when confronted with hostile blatant spying attempts. Nobody cares if it's Obama, Trump, Bush, Hillary, or yourself. Bring F-22; would love to test all Chinese radars on it and get some nice data. China won't be intimidated by this garbage. And if you think you're right and I'm wrong, let's see what happens in the future. No need to clear anything up with me; just watch the news and wait for the next one. See if China backs off or whether they continue to intercept just this way (barrel roll 20 meters over the spy plane's cockpit). Let's see if F-22 dare show their faces by China's door or if they would much prefer to stay home and "kill" F-15/16 instead.

    Got it in one, Brat! If PRC pilots keep conducting unprofessional and unsafe maneuvers, then it's only a matter of time before they cause yet another tragic accident.

    Unprofessional? More like professionalism. The Chinese pilot kept the target in sight at all time and won't get any nasty surprise if the target were to suddenly pull up. Flying above the US plane without inverting would actually be idiotic, because neither side could see the other. This inverted manoeuvre is actually safer. Beside, in international airspace, Chinese aircraft can fly however the heck they want. America's concept of professionalism has no jurisdiction here.

    There is no such thing as unprofessional Chinese behavior when reacting to hostile acts in its own backyard. If you invade someone else's EEZ to spy on them, all accidents are your fault; the owner can fight you as he sees fit.

    Fun fact: "Unprofessional" is one of my favorite funny English words. It's what Westerners default to when describing something they just don't like but can't articulate why not without making fools out of themselves.

    For example: "The Chinese should have flown their fighters half a mile away from our surveillance jet and continuously warned us by radio so we could ignore them and continue our intelligence mission against them. Instead, they went within 10 meters and barrel-rolled over our cockpit. Our pilot almost soiled himself and turned around immediately, thus foiling our mission."

    That sounds stupid and incompetent so it came out like this: "The Chinese acted highly unprofessionally during their encounter with our surveillance craft so we shall lodge a(nother) complaint and hopefully get a code of professional conduct drafted (preferably one that leaves many loopholes for us to spy on them and bind them from doing anything about it)."
