China's refitted aircraft carrier left its shipyard at Dalian Port in northeast Liaoning Province on Wednesday morning to start its first sea trial. Military sources said that the first trial is on schedule for the carrier's refitting project and shouldnt take long.

After returning from its trial, the aircraft carrier will continue refitting and testing work. The carrier was originally built by the former Soviet Union which named it Varyag but failed to complete its construction before collapsing in 1991. The still-unnamed aircraft carrier was an empty shell. Ukraine disarmed it and removed its engines before selling it to China.
