    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: 65000-75000t (full displacement)


    ---------

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

    These images show clearly the arrested recovery system (wires) placed near the beginning of the landing strip of a Chinese STOBAR aircraft carrier:
