Ceremony held on China's first aircraft carrier

Edited and translated by Liang Jun

China's first aircraft carrier, which is being refitted at the port of Dalian, flew all the flags on Thursday. Photos show what looks like a ceremony is being held on the deck of the carrier.

The carrier, built on former Ukrainian vessel Varyag, is capable of carrying around 30 fixed wing fighters and helicopters and a crew of about 2,000. And the hull number, "16," has been painted on the ship recently.
