J-15 flies from Liaoning
Waste of military resources.

It's one thing to get carrier flight operations exactly right, but it's another thing entirely to have an idea of what to do with the damn thing.

China can't do much with one carrier. But let them get another one and they can start chasing the Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malaysians, etc out of the South China Sea and those itty-bitty islets that have all that oil under them.
China on Wednesday successfully conducted taking-off and landing exercises of J-15 fighter jets on the country's first aircraft, the Liaoning. This is the second time the country has conducted such training after a first jet landing exercise passed successfully on the deck in November last year.

The Liaoning, which set sail for a first sea trial this year on June 9, has conducted a series of tests and training regarding carrier-borne aircraft.

The J-15 is China's first-generation multi-purpose carrier-borne fighter jet.
