(01-02 11:58)

Aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, returned to its homeport in northern China yesterday after completing a series of scientific tests and training programs in the South China Sea.
A navy source said the carrier tested its combat system and conducted a formation practice during its 37-day voyage.
Such tests have "attained the anticipated objectives,’’ the source said.
Liaoning's combat and power system and its seagoing capability have been further tested during the trip. “All tests and training programs went well as scheduled,’’ according to the source.
The Chinese Navy dispatched aircraft, naval vessels and submarines to join the tests.
The Liaoning is China's only aircraft carrier in operation.--Xinhua
