Apparently they are parked in Quzhou Airport. I’ve visited several times in the past and they definitely have shelters for fighter aircraft. The fact that they are parking them out in the open seems to indicated that they want the satellites to capture them.

So the question now is: Is this our long expected missing new J-20A brigade or simply a deployment?

I think it is redeployment.
But why redeployment? We know in the ETC the only active unit is or maybe was at Wuhu the 9th Air Brigade, So, if this is a deployment of the 9th AB it isn't really a re-deployment or it is in fact the re-equipped 85th AB with re-deployment back to Quzhou?

I though they redeployed because Wuhu airport was under maintenance? Since j818cm stated that they are fixing hangers in Quzhou as well... This makes the maintenance claim a bit baffling. Of course I hope that this is a new J-20 brigade, but usually PLAAF discloses new deployments.
