a time when in March, the Tibetan Plateau is still bleak. 5:00 a plateau airport shrouded in a dark night. Minus 20 degrees Celsius in winter, the soldiers gathered in an emergency runway before the implementation of lighting control, with a weak flashlight light fighters dispatched doing the final preparations … Not long ago, the Chengdu Military Region Air Force unit stationed in Tibet to focus on the tasks in the new situation changes in demand to hold the new fighters live attack drills, precision strikes on a variety of simulated target.40
7, the Mainland has already dawn, but because of time differences, the Tibetan Plateau is still night fog. I see in the 3500 meters above sea level at the airport, the officers and men in the dark and accurate completion of fighter refueling oxygenation charge, loading bombs a series of operations. With a blue flares pierced the night sky, the pilots of new aircraft skidded off the runway and fled to the sky.
after through the clouds and mist hundreds of kilometers of flight, the aircraft flew a range over 3800 meters above sea level. The pilot quickly locked in a ground target, and make preparations for attack. When a ground command, the pilot began to choose to attack the timing and attack. Suddenly, fighters become truly predatory eagle. In the context of the darkness, the pilots flew a series of complete pretty offensive action. Every dive are relying on the irresistible force, and every launch has such withering. Precision-guided bombs strange and unpredictable attacks various preset target instant experience “disaster”. Warplanes roaring at the top of the snow-capped mountains of the time, the range is filled with violent explosions and the pungent smell of smoke.
in recent years, many times in the plateau region highly difficult subjects training, focusing on the whole territory of the bad temper troops in the complex environment of aviation, radar, communications, engineering and other branches of the military fully deployed, in close coordination with all-weather operational capability and full time to raise the overall.
