China's naval fleet escort into the Arabian Sea

January 2, "the sea" guided missile destroyer in the Indian Ocean to continue racing.
Because the reporters about shooting a sunrise at sea, so starting earlier than yesterday, also rushed to the deck, or did not catch up with the sunrise, but to catch up with a special combat ship deck the whole process of morning exercises.
Reporters took several pockets of special combat photos morning exercises, shaking himself with a jogging laps around the deck, such as special combat the end of the morning exercises, will be on the road in the past with the special combat ship with the person in charge to talk. He said the ship by the conditions, special combat force personnel were on shore every day to carry out the usual long-distance race, such as physical training can not start the fight for the general ship, grappling, combat training, and so the aim of carrying out its mandate in The first time to defeat the enemy.
After breakfast, stroll up to the deck, listening to ship-based helicopter crew members, said the morning flight training to perform the task, there are seats on the plane, they can apply for an interview with the helicopter shooting. We hasten to look for ships with the reporter who is responsible for General Tao and apply for an interview with the helicopter, and then Director-General Tao, "the sea" ship commanders to coordinate, and soon, my application is approved.
Although the helicopter took off there for some time, but I still acute examination of the good news cameras filming equipment, put on life jackets, early on deck to go forward to watching. 9:00 ship time, pilots and staff the opportunity to start boarding, the Central People's Broadcasting Station Sun reporters came to little, give me a shot off before the helicopter and waved photos.
A very small space inside the cabin, people can not be straight up, the pilot from time to time to remind everyone to be careful do not meet, the top of the head and the cabin Liangbi, to densely covered with a variety of pipeline, the cockpit instruments are all types of flight. I put on the pilot's flight helmet, but do not worry about touching the head, but in particular the hot, clammy and sweating, after flying back to the cabin living room, took off his life jacket before they found the body up and down the wet clothes .
Check-in before and after the ground crew that tension neat, orderly way to carry out preparations for the flight. 10:00 ship time soon, accompanied by bursts of a huge roar, ship-borne helicopters double-propeller rotating in the opposite direction to the faster more quickly from the deck into the sky, the sea and flew to the task. Away from the sea about 500 meters when flying in the air, the sea view from the plane, seems to see the formation of the ground, scattered on the ground looked like waves on the snow has not melted general.
Because we have three escort ships between the formation of a certain distance from the air can not get the three-ship line-up screen surf the spectacular, coupled with before and I have no experience in aerial photography, each formation ships true of the majestic shot in the air and the results would be Unsatisfactory, I am very sorry. However, a number of photo shoot, but also accumulated experience that for the next application by helicopter when they can shoot a good number of aerial images.
We ship from a helicopter mission to patrol the waters after the return of "the sea" landing ship, up from a "Wuhan" passenger ship, the helicopter took off immediately rushed to the "Wuhan" ship, the "Wuhan" to lay down their passengers after the ship landed not Stay, and immediately flew to the "Weishanhu" comprehensive supply ship refueling tanker aircraft taking advantage of the effort, we have to "Weishanhu" on a short break. The most intuitive impression that the "Weishanhu" than "access to the sea," a multi-wide ship, but also more stable, relatively speaking, Rulvpingdi stand on the deck, making a number of "access to the sea" sailing ship photos , Also refuel the helicopter is over, as soon as possible to board the plane soon, the plane took off to return to direct "access to the sea" ship.
My first ship-borne helicopters and helicopter tours, about an hour after the flight, shuttle to and from ships in the fleet after the successful conclusion of the three. This is my first helicopter ride, but also for the first time in the air for an interview with aerial photography, there are fortunate to become "the sea" ship-to-ship with reporters in the first interview by helicopter, the aerial reporters, feeling good and looking forward to have begun once again by helicopter and an interview The aerial photography.
From the beginning of last night, the third ship transfer, and transfer an hour later, after the transfer ship three hours later than Beijing. Listen to the radio that the ship this evening, we had been escorting the group into the Arabian Sea. It is understood that the formation of our convoy is expected to arrive later on the 6th Gulf of Aden, the Somali waters, then 5-6 hour time difference with Beijing.
