Concrete Aircraft Carrier.

This is coolbert:

To war with concrete aircraft carrier.

Well, not exactly.

The Chinese have built a concrete aircraft carrier with ski-jump take-off ramp as a means of training their naval aviation pilots. This impressive edifice far from the ocean, CONSTRUCTED OVER AN EXISTING BUILDING, AT LEAST FROM THE DECK PORTION UPWARD FULL-SIZE!!

"Concrete Aircraft Carrier Building Discovered In Wuhan"

From the original article as of 2009.

Chinese concrete aircraft carrier constructed on top of a building. The ski-jump take off for the warplanes seen on the extreme right of the image.

An enlarged image of the ski-jump take off.

That Chinese demand for concrete enormous and apparently insatiable. Those interested might want to refer to this Forbes article, alleging that: "between 2011 and 2013, China consumed 6.6 gigatons of concrete – that’s more than the U.S. used in the entire 20th century". Roads, dams, and CONCRETE AIRCRAFT CARRIERS.
