Int'l fleet review begins off Qingdao

An international fleet review commenced this afternoon in waters off China's port city of Qingdao, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy.

A total of 21 visiting naval vessels from 14 countries took part in the review with the rhythms of "March of the Review," a Chinese melody usually played for formal occasions. All the foreign ships flew their flags at full-staff.

The vessels lined up in a row in the order of combatant ships, landing craft, auxiliary ships and a sailing ship for training. In each category, the order was placed based on their tonnages.
