Happy Monday, let's start things off with this photo of China's aircraft carrier returning from its second cruise in PLAN ( I mean China Navy) colors. This picture surfaced at China Defense Blog on Saturday and shows ex-Varyag being towed back to harbor at Dalian. Remember, she sailed for her second sea trial on Nov. 29. If she returned home on Saturday, it means the ship was at sea for about two weeks. That's a heck of a lot longer than her daylong initial sea trial last August.
