    Since the picture of her departure shows equipment and containers still on her deck near the island, she could not have attained the flight comfiguration depicted above without another port visit.

    Yes, both are out. Photo opp is a possibility, but my guess would be that it will happen at a later stage, with actual airwing on both.

    Here is the article that accompanied the video above From Henri K
    There is one then there are two soon to be three
    Finally, Two Chinese Aircraft Carriers At Sea…
    For the first time ever, two People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN or Chinese Navy) aircraft carriers got underway and were at sea, at the same time. This took place on February 27, 2019.
    Xavier Vavasseur 03 Mar 2019

    This article was first published in French language by East Pendulum

    Almost 30 years ago, when China launched its first catapult aircraft carrier program (CATOBAR) known as Program 891, no one would have imagined that one day the country would be equipped with two, or more, aircraft carriers. Even less so since the same program was canceled under a political order 6 years later, in 1995, and the term “aircraft carrier” became a taboo and banned in all internal documents for several years.

    But this is a different time. 30 years later, more precisely on February 27, 2019, two Chinese aircraft carriers were at sea at the same time. And yet this almost symbolic if not historical event has gone almost unnoticed in China, as if it was insignificant, or as if it was just business as usual, nothing special.

    Back at the Dalian shipyard since May 2018, the aircraft carrier Liaoning, formerly Varyag and sistership of the Russian aircraft carrier Amiral Kuznetsov, has undergone significant changes. These changes include a redesigned navigation bridge. This was likely the first major overhaul of the ship since its commissioning in September 2012.

    L'un des deux porte-avions chinois va partir en essais mer durant 10 jours, du 24 Février au 5 Mars.

    See East Pendulum's other Tweets
    After several months of refitting work, China’s first aircraft carrier got underway again at the end of January for an eight-day trial campaign. This was followed by a second on, last Sunday, which should last until March 5th.
    Liaoning was quickly followed by its Chinese quasi-twin, Type 002 ( sometimes referred in China as H/JRZ-002). On February 26th, Hong Kong press reporters Ta Kung Wen Wei (大公 公匯) filmed the crew of the second and newest Chinese aircraft carriers inspecting the flight deck several times and testing the tractors with a full-size model of the J-15 electronic warfare fighter.

    It was under heavy sea haze the next afternoon that the vessel displacing 60,000-tons left Dalian port, where it had been under construction since March 2015.

    It is not yet known whether the Type 002 will join Liaoning in the test area (this seems unlikely and of little interest at the moment) or whether Type 002 will conduct its own tests in another zone as what is suggested by the LN-0033 (辽 航 警 0033) navigation notification of the Chinese authorities.

    Anyways, according to a source close to the PLAN, this fifth set of sea trials for the new aircraft carrier would be used to individually test systems on board, while all tests related to navigation would already be concluded.

    C'est probablement la toute 1ère fois dans l'histoire que 2 porte-avions chinois sont à la mer au même temps. Ce matin le nouveau porte-avions Type 002 a pris le large pour entamer sa 5e sortie en mer, alors que le Liaoning avait déjà quitté le même port de Dalian il y a 4 jours.

    Now that two Chinese aircraft carriers are at sea, the question is, when will we get to see three, four or more together at sea ?
