Satellite photos show China building its third airship in disputed South China Sea

Countries who declared claimants to South China Sea have something to worry about:

The photographs taken for Washington’s Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) thinktank on 8 September are said to show construction on Mischief Reef, one of several artificial islands China has created in the Spratly archipelago.

 

Security experts said the strip would be long enough to accommodate most Chinese military aircraft, giving Beijing greater reach into the heart of maritime south-east Asia where it has competing claims with several countries.
