A little FOD walkdown. A necessary job albeit boring. Humm? :eek: A total absence of female sailors..interesting..
Thinking about 20 % in US Mil Forces, on CVN even in the flight deck an area with more " combattants " personnals from Flotillas especialy i see an enough important number of women.

On the Charles De Gaule i don t remenber see a women, they have 15 % of women in French Mil Forces but on the Charles De Gaulle by ex in the ships secretary, nurses etc...

I don' t know what % in Chinese Mil Forces ?

But a fact if they are few as you say Popeye my friend, Equation going for to be really bored hahaha :D Dom Juan :rolleyes: ;)

Gotta get a few of the older pics here on this new page...just to make sure:

CV-16-7xJ15-04.jpg LIaonin-8xJ15-01.jpg CV-16-Eight-J15.jpg LIaonin-8xJ15-07.jpg LIaonin-8xJ15-05.jpg Liaoning-Deckops-01.jpg

She's a beautiful ship, and the Chinese are really starting to get a handle on how to operate her aircraft on that deck, launch them, and recover them...which is the entire purpose of having such a vessel.

This picture inparticular shows you how far the Chinese have come:



She is looking there every bit as proficient and squared away as the Russians with the Kuznetsov and their SU-33s...except the J-15 is better than the SU-33 IMHO, and the Russians have had 26 years to work thye Kuznetsov up, and the Chinese have done it in four years!

The problem that I see in all these photos is that they are flying without payloads. I have seen very few photos of J-15 landing and taking off with payloads. And no night time flying either.

Another batch of photos emerged (mostly from pilots perspective).









Great pics!

Thanks.

I want to see a landing scene on the Liaoning, but with several other J-15s to the side as the landing aircraft comes in.

Here are some like that on US carriers:

I guess they don't carry payloads for new pilot certificating.
and check up this one:

A little higher resolution and better clarity:

LIaoning-8xJ15-00.jpg

I really like that pic...but there are still the eight J-15s.

I want to see twelve at some point...and they may easily have already done it, but we just have not seen the pics yet.
