Chinese two pilots of the Air Force of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) sacrificed themselves in a flight training on March 31, 2013 in Rongcheng, east China’s Shandong province, and their voices and appearance were released prior to the Tomb Sweeping Day which falls on April 4, 2013.
The two pilots are Wu Yongming, deputy chief of staff of an aviation regiment under the PLA Air Force, and Yu Liang, head of a flight group of the aviation regiment under the PLA Air Force.
Wu Yongming, born in August 1977 and native of Luoyang of central China’s Henan province, a first-grade pilot who was awarded a second-class merit citation and a third-class merit citation.
Yu Liang, born in May 1980 and native of Pengzhou of southwest China’s Sichuan province, a first-grade pilot who was awarded three third-class merit citations and elected as an “Excellent Pilot in Air Battle” in November 2012. Man's dearest possession is life, and the life for a young fighter pilot is invaluable. But beyond life is something much more valuable, that is, the loyalty and fearlessness of the PLA Air Force.
