Pictures released recently seem to indicate a 10-hour patrol by a KQ-200 / Y-8GX-6 ASW plane assigned to 1st Naval Air Division with the number 82014 (original note: A Y-8 ASW aircraft attached to a naval aviation division under the PLA Eastern Theater Command is in a maritime patrol during a round-the-clock flight training exercise in mid-December, 2020. Photo by Guo Yunbo).

Takeoff (with taxi lights on) at dawn around 7 AM:

Landing (full flaps deployed) before sunset around 5 PM:
