This is the new facility which is 20 km southeast of the old location. The old runway and many buildings have been dismantled.

Is this a serious thing or is it "PLANAF's CNY greeting/begging for more funding by appearing poor" type thing?

Also that second photo had the plane angled just right to make a tricycle landing gear arrangement look like a taildragger, the right wing landing gear is positioned exactly right to make it look like a tail gear.

In 2024, the PLAN is so poor that all their J-15s got repo'ed. Now, they have to resort to operating CJ-6s from Fujian instead:
