On February 28, at a regular press conference of the Ministry of Defense, in response to the question of whether Liaoning ships and the first domestic aircraft carrier will participate in the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Peoples Navy, a spokesman, Ren Guoqiang, said that a series of commemorative activities for the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Peoples Liberation Army Navy, including multinational naval activities, were under preparation. As for whether Liaoning and other naval vessels will participate, we will announce it to the public in due course.
Military expert Li Jie said in an interview with Peoples Network that although it is not clear whether domestic aircraft carriers can participate in the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Peoples Navy, Li Jie believes that it is very likely that they will serve in this year. Since the completion of its first sea trial mission on May 13 last year, it has conducted four successive sea trials, the latest of which is February 27 this year. After one or two more trial voyages, it is possible that the first domestic aircraft carrier will be officially commissioned in the year. Li Jie said.
According to the pictures and texts of the news photo website Oriental IC on April 12, Liaoning Dalian, Chinas first domestic aircraft carrier has the latest progress: the domestic aircraft carriers flight deck is painted through before and after, and the island scaffolding is completely dismantled. Some deck painting is under way around the island, and the builders continue to work on the ship.
