A beautiful set of high-resolution images of J-16.





Can someone locate the airport on Google Earth based on the "Long-Live the CCP" phrase carved on the background hilltop?

Could be Huizhou-Huiyang, home of the 26th Air Brigade ... but at GE I cannot see this text; also it is not located in Yunnan province ... so maybe Luliang, home of the 131st Air Brigade in Yunnan, but again I cannot find it at GE.

It is indeed Luliang at 25° 1'59.47"N 103°47'51.41"E about 15.5 km away from the airbase.
