    This thread dedicated to pics showing the commissioning of China's first domestic-built AC.

    Key facts:

    Type: STOBAR (Short take-off [ie. ski-jump] but arrested recovery [ie. hooking onto wires to slow down the aircraft])

    Displacement: 65000t (full displacement)


    Here is a short clip of "arrested recovery" (showing J-15 coming to a full stop by grappling onto wires laid onto the landing strip):


    The 65000t aircraft carrier as it was being built:




    P.S: A little erratum in the thread's title, should read 65000t instead of 60000t.
