    Well, it hasn't completed its carrier quals to start with, I don't know if they have launched or recovered fixed wing aircraft, but that's just one major milestone yet to come? recovering and stacking birds, weapons elevators and dry runs, you know the drill.

    An old photo that let us think the ship may has returned to port and the mock up aircraft for fire fighting drills that are part of the fixed equipment as indication for flight ops?

    The whole article is bullshit.

    I think, the ship didn't made an intermediate return tio its base.

    Well Henri K predicted that the first outing will last 4 days which is correct So maybe they did identify thing that need to be fixed nothing special really that is the nature of testing
    Now she is ready and back again to continue with the trial So what is unusual about that?
    If anything that is sign of accelerating testing

    The article is silly and makes no sense, however I believe we have seen skid marks on the ship that are suggestive of at least touch and goes.

    Considering when the carrier is expected to enter service and considering its timetable relative to Liaoning, doing the last stages of verifying relevant equipment for flight ops in sea trials now should make sense.

    I don’t think 848 was accompanying 002. It’s more likely 848 was simply passing by like the guy who took the photo.

    002 would be in a restricted area during her sea trial, thus it is unlikely a minesweeper accidentally meet up with her. From many previous sea trial photo, including that of CV16 Liaoning, we have seen many different types of naval ships accompany her, which includes DDG, FFG, submarine rescue ship.

    When 002 sailed out for this sea trial, another minesweeper #811 was at the scene probably acting as sentry/ escort, thus it is not an accident that another minesweeper #848 doing escort duty.

    The choice of minesweeper and submarine recue ship for escort duty is purposeful. This is a peace time sea trial, there is no need for DDG or FFG. Minesweeper and submarine rescue ships have better under water equipment, and is more than adequate than a DDG or FFG in case there is an accident of an aircraft in water during the sea trial involving air operation.

    Appearance of a couple of minesweeper point towards that 11th mine sweepers squadron based in Dalian has been given the escort task.
