    My guess is the ship will run builder's sea trial in late 2018, delivered to the navy by end of 2018, navy trials including deck operation, arrested landing, etc, through the first half of 2019, and training throughout 2019, with 1-2 work up cruises, and ready for actual operation sometime first half of 2020.

    If I understand the translation of @bd popeyes post correct, the event is between 23. and 26. depending on the tide.

    The caption claims that rumours of an April 23 launch are unconfirmed. Additionally, the tides for April 23 are unsuitable for a launch and the actual launch should logically take place after April 26. The source is 辽宁号指挥长 who, IIRC, is an admin for CJDBY naval section. His words should hold substantial weight.

    any fresh info related to the launch? (it's Saturday afternoon in Dalian, so it could happen within less than one day from now :)

    Photos from sina, the ship is clean, I think she is ready for the launch. Previous rumors suggested Sunday 23 April. Let's wait and see.

    Hmmm ... at the CDF there however is a new rumour posted that the "big boss" has arrived at Dalian, so a launch this weekend looks more and more likely.
