Workers are seen on the flight deck of China's first aircraft carrier, the former "Varyag" of Ukraine, which is under restoration at a shipyard in northeastern China's Liaoning province. China has acknowledged it is rebuilding an aircraft carrier bought more than a decade ago, but says the refurbished ship will be used only for research and training - a strong indication it plans to build carriers of its own.
