Check out the latest video of China’s first domestically built aircraft carrier. A carrier-borne J-15 fighter takes off and lands on the flight deck of the Shandong.

China’s first domestically built aircraft carrier was delivered to the navy on Tuesday, state media reported. The arrival of the warship Shandong, the second aircraft carrier in the fleet, marked a significant step in the country’s military modernisation programme.

China commissioned its first domestically built aircraft carrier into service on Tuesday at a key base on the shores of the disputed South China Sea, in another big step in the country’s ambitious military modernisation.

Little is known about China’s aircraft carrier programme, which is a state secret. But the government has said the new carrier’s design draws on experiences from the country’s first carrier, the Liaoning, which was bought second-hand from Ukraine in 1998
