 China Lands Fighter Jet on Aircraft Carrier Bought from Ukraine. PHOTO

China conducted a successful test of its first aircraft carrier Liaoning by landing Shenyang J-15 fighter plane on its deck.

Lenta.ru and Xinhua report that the landing was the next test for the aircraft carrier built on the basis of the Soviet aircraft carrier Varyag which China bought from Ukraine in an unfinished state to turn it into a casino but eventually completed it for the army. On September 25, 2012 Liaoning entered into service.


Chinese Navy Command plans to use the Liaoning for training while creating its own carrier. Fighter-bomber Shenyang J-15 is modeled after the Soviet fourth-generation fighter Su-33 T10K which China also bought from Ukraine.
