According to China standard, its slow.... Its fast compare to West standard.

Pardon, but that's an unjustified arrogance or a stupid comment! China so far built de facto NONE fully indigenous super-carrier and as such such it is even according to Chinese standard quite fast.

There is no Chinese standard and therefore it is not slow by Chinese standard?

Never mind the completely arbitrary reduction to a hyper specific instance of ships to effectively exclude any precedence of Chinese shipbuilding, something nobody has talked about, how does that even compute? If you assert there is nothing to relate to then it cant have any relative properties like fast or slow.

Agreed, you can see it this way .. but then it's valid in the same way to this post? Or am I wrong?

Progress seems slow.

By the way, I got aware, that there was a new GeoEye-1/MAXAR image captured yesterday and by an analysis it looks like they're making progress on the port side flight deck overhang. The whole ship by now appears to be ~315 m long at this stage.
Doesn't look like it'll get much longer if at all.

After several more than "not really good" images of the Type 003 aircraft carrier, here is finally again a clearer one.

Slowly the images of the Type 003 carrier are getting better again ... And as it seems, there is the hangar opening clearly visible for the first time! (Image via @j818cm/SDF)

Again a very blurry image of the Type 003 aircraft carrier allegedly taken on 19th May and as it seems there is some progress visible on the aft deck and to the deck extensions on the starboard side.

As it seems on this latest image showing the Type 003 carrier under construction at the Jiangnan Changxing shipyard near Shanghai, the flight deck is starting to take shape. Also the Type 055 DDG seen in the lats images has left the dry dock.

added also is an estimation of this module‘s dimensions.
