 China's aircraft carrier platform which had berthed in the Dalian Port set sail again at around 9 o'clock on May 23, 2012.

  From 08:00 of May 23, six tugboats approached the aircraft carrier platform successively and lined up by the bow, port side and stern of the aircraft carrier platform.

  At 09:00 sharp, the aircraft carrier platform sailed out of the port with the help of the tugboats and into the sea lane for the deep sea 30 minutes later.

  The reporter saw at the port that the No.88 Ship of the Navy of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) which had accompanied the aircraft carrier platform previously did not show up this time.

  The Liaoning Maritime Affairs Administration issued LHJ0099 navigation warning at 08:15 on May 21 saying military missions are scheduled from 08:00 of May 22 to 18:00 of June 2 within the waters bounded by five positions. No vessel shall enter the area during the period.
