Asia-Pacific Military Aviation News roundup: 06 Sept 2013

A screengrab off Chinese state television (above) shows what appears to be a Shenyang J-15 Flying Shark in Chinese Navy colours. The type had only previously been seen in primer or Shenyang Aircraft Corporation's markings.

The pivot continues. The U.S. Army will deploy 30 OH-58D Kiowa Warrior helicopters to South Korea beginning October. This nine-month, rotational deployment will be the first time OH-58Ds will be South Korea since they left in 2008.

The Republic of Korea Air Force will resume flying the KAI T-50 trainer after an interim report found no technical problems with the aircraft following a recent fatal crash.
