China now capable of deploying jets on aircraft carrier: Navy
Beijing: China is now capable of deploying fighter jets on its first aircraft carrier after successful landing exercises on it, a senior navy officer has said.
Chinese pilots successfully landed and took off the J-15 jet from ‘The Liaoning’ aircraft carrier on Sunday.
Pilots have mastered key skills to ensure the success of the take-off and the landing, especially under unfavourable conditions such as poor visibility and unstable airflow, Vice-Admiral Zhang Yongyi, a deputy commander of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Navy, has said.
“It’s like ‘dancing on a knifepoint’ as aircraft have to land on a very limited space,” Zhang was quoted by state-run Xinhua news agency as saying, while commenting on the successful flight landing recently conducted on ‘The Liaoning’
