The "Love of Sailing" wedding show was staged in Tianjin Binhai New Area on Friday, marking the first event of its kind on an aircraft carrier. So far, this particular aircraft carrier is the only one in the world that can host a wedding ceremony for civilian people. In addition to the normal events and moments usually seen at a wedding ceremony, the highlight for this show is the helicopter flight. Newlyweds can ride in the helicopter from the carrier's deck and tour around the Tianjin Port. The aircraft carrier Kiev, which rests in the Tianjin Binhai Aircraft Carrier Theme Park, is a retired Soviet-era warship. The carrier is 273 meters long and 53 meters wide.
