PLA Navy Deploys One J-15 CAG

The Peoples’ Liberation Army’s Navy’s deployed its first Carrier Air Group based on the Shenyang J-15 Flying Shark carrier-based fighter/intercepter.

Sadly, the PLA Navy has only one modern aircraft carrier, the formerly Russian Admiral Kuznetsov class multirole aircraft carrier Liaoning (16) (Chinese: 中国人民解放军海军辽宁舰; pinyin: Zhōngguó Rénmín Jiěfàngjūn Hǎijūn Liáoníng Jiàn).


Venice and El Niño – January, 1983

Do you see what happens, Larry? This is what happens, Larry…


I was at Hinano Cafe the other day and once again got lost in the photo prints hanging on the wall. The one that always gets me shows the exterior of the building with flood water covering most of the building. I decided to see if I could find any other photos of Venice showing the effect of the storm damage. I only found a few small ones, but they say a lot.
