J-15.jpg

Trolling through the China Military Aviation site thismorning I came across a recent photo of the the Shenyang J-15. The aircraft is acopy of the old Soviet Su-33  destinedfor use on China’s aircraft carrier – formerly Russia’s Varyag, apparentlyre-named the Shi Lang (after a 17th century admiral who conqueredTaiwan).

As with the Su-33, the Chinese aircaft has folding wings anda clipped tailcone to better fit aboard ship.  A tailhook is also clearly visible.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks!
