the Japanese ship has no aircraft on deck and is almost certainly not conducting flight operations. The Chinese carrier also seem to have no other aircraft on deck and not conducting any high tempo flight operation.

if both ships were conducting intensive flight operations, then this would certainly be a dangerous situation given the fact that they would be unlikely to coordinate their flight patterns.

It is a helicopter rear landing gear, but with debris/rock grill guard. Have we seen such debris grill guard on any navy helicopters before? I believe all current in-service navy helicopters are not fitted with this grill guard. Can't find it on Z20 either.

Debris grill guard indicate use of aircraft on rough unprepared landing sites but rarely found on helicopters.

Are you sure? IMO it is just a regular J-15's landing gear. IMO it refers to the text written on the island which can be translated as "watch out for the jet stream/exhaust and the helicopter rotors"

You are right, it is J15. The word "blade" made me confused.

It is the writing in the background on the island, a general warning about the activity of aircraft on the flight deck including jet powered aircraft (fighters) and blades (helicopters).

It is not a reference to that specific moment captured on the camera...

This is what it says on every island and on every hangar wall of an American aircraft carrier: "beware of jetblast props and rotors"

Same reasons for this, a carrier deck is a dangerous place:
