Question of the day: where is Liaoning? It is at Hainan.

China's aircraft carrier docks in Sanya

ABOARD LIAONING AIRCRAFT CARRIER, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- China's aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, carried out its first docking manoeuver at Sanya City's a naval harbor in south China's Hainan Province on Friday morning.

The aircraft carrier will carry out relevant experiments and trainings here.

On Tuesday, the Liaoning left its home port of Qingdao in east China's Shandong Province for the South China Sea, passing through the Taiwan Strait on Thursday.

This is the first time the Liaoning has conducted a cross-sea training voyage since it was commissioned into the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy last year.

It was escorted by two missile destroyers, the Shenyang and Shijiazhuang, and two missile frigates, the Yantai and Weifang.
