BEIJING, April 19, (ChinaMil) -- China's first aircraft carrier "Liaoning Ship" has been carrying out various tests and training as scheduled since it berthed at a naval port in Qingdao in east China's Shandong province on February 27, 2013. The "Liaoning Ship" will make an oceangoing voyage at a golden opportunity in 2013.

Currently, the naval port for aircraft carrier is able to provide in-port support for the "Liaoning Ship", and is still being streamlined. The naval port is adjacent to mountains and the Yellow Sea, and the "Liaoning Ship" can sail directly into the sea from the dock that is at a right angle to the coastline. The enormous "Liaoning Ship" berths at one side of the dock, firmly fixed to the dock by 16 ham-like cables. The dock adopts a jetty-type structure, without much visual difference from other naval ports.

The "Liaoning Ship" berthing at the port has been carrying out various static tests, the crew has also been conducting training as planned, and up to now, they have completed hundreds of training subjects and test subjects. According to the plan, open-sea tests and carrier-borne aircraft landing training among other training will be carried out in the future.
