commemorate the 80th anniversary of founding, the author then exciting fighting years, visited the 85-year-old Liu embankment general.
generals sitting in a chair, thought for a moment, said: “I participated in the Korean War air combat, the individual was more than 200 hours of flight time, only 15 hours flying jet aircraft, while Air Force pilots were quite participated in a large part of the World War II, flying time is a few times. “stroke, 50 years passing by. General memories, so I truly feel his time alone in the brilliant shot down four aircraft.
1951 年 10 23, one day write a combat myth. At noon that day, the United States flew 36, totaling 116, north of Pyongyang, North Korea over activity in an attempt to attack ground targets around Chungchon. 3 Division 24 Air Force MiG fighter jets, made from 8,000 meters above the 180-degree turn down to the activities of U.S. airspace machine sprang. When Liu embankment with lightning speed when approaching enemy, the enemy’s cunning eight F-84 aircraft is a high degree of decline in an attempt to escape to the sea. Because I did not pilot the flight experience at sea, the sea is blue days and can easily lead to delusion. But Liu embankment hurry, bite the last two U.S. aircraft, has been tracked over the sea. Liu looked at the embankment behind the cover of his wingman, catching up with a dive down. Appeared to be close to the sea, and the U.S. lead plane hurriedly pull, turn to escape, may be too late, Liu embankment biting Then, in the 440 meters impose heavy fire, to play volley flowering, crashed into the sea. Enemy wingman Huangbuzelu happened to the belly in front dike exposed to Liu. Liu embankment seize this fleeting moment, a press shot button, the enemy was immediately hit a fire, dragging a long smoke, ran straight down.
Liu embankment and lay two enemy aircraft, and then turn around to find his wingman, they disappeared wingman in sight, he had to return to the theater over the stand-alone. At this time, he found seven F-84 aircraft in the U.S. bombing of railway lines. Liu embankment behind it quickly to keep up with enemy aircraft, he unconsciously looked back. See the back there is no enemy, is preparing to fire, in the bottom of his head pop up a plane, the two sides only a few meters away, almost hitting. U.S. aircraft also found him to accelerate to escape, Liu embankment in hot pursuit. U.S. plane suddenly fierce close the throttle, reducing the speed, attempting to make the aircraft rushed to the front of Liu Di, change from passive to active. Liu Di Yi Deng rudder gently, go to the U.S. plane’s side. Enemy ruse did not succeed, but because of deceleration from the fleet, confusion among a dive got into the ravine in an attempt to get rid of Liu Di, Liu embankment bite and hold, appeared to hit a mountain, the enemy had to pull up, happen to be Liu embankment sight lock, immediately fired, the enemy was shot down in one fell swoop.
General admits: “I have never been flying low altitude, was also ready to sacrifice, do not shoot down enemy planes dogged!”
U.S. aircraft knocked out after that frame, Liu embankment no fighting and withdraw immediately attack, flew up to 5000 m altitude, ready to find their own team. At this time, he found over in clear Kawaguchi is preparing to return more than 50 aircraft of U.S. aircraft hovered over the Gulf. Godsend! Liu embankment heart feel pleased, he quietly reduce the height of the rapidly approaching U.S. fleet in the left rear, and followed closely behind the two enemy aircraft. When he tried to fire 400 meters from the enemy, the U.S. plane was unfortunately discovered. Dual enemy suddenly separated from their attempt to escape. At that moment, Liu embankment a sharp turn, target the enemy wingman, 150 meters away from the fire, the enemy aerial explosion. Suddenly like a dark mass of the cluster bombing of the United States nest like four spread. Take advantage of the enemy in shock, Liu embankment a drill cloud swallows, leapt m altitude, the momentum out of the theater, the safe return of airports.
“recall the scene at that time, there after the fear of it?” The face of the author’s inquiry, the general said with a smile: “It was thought after the issue of fear, a little bloody soldiers will encounter that situation as I do! “
time cooling of the war, washing the memory. When I please say a few general words of the young pilots, the old man thought a moment, said: “I hope the younger generation do not forget this history, in times of peace but also to be prepared. To remember the party and the people, the wings practice hard, really do to not disgrace the sacred mission of our military, territorial integrity and resolutely safeguard the motherland’s peaceful blue sky. “

1958 年 7 29, the KMT four F-84 aircraft to my harassment investigation in Shantou area. 11 am, I set sail four aircraft at low altitude, rising through the clouds using cloud-gap formation. Usually hard “aerial telescope” Three local high long effort to find the enemy first guitar, his agility to fly a plane into the enemy inside the roundabout, at 170 meters distance of a burst, the enemy hit volley flowering; IV machine Zhang Lin bite another enemy aircraft, fired three consecutive times, the enemy was beaten two wings, immediately crashed into the sea. Almost simultaneously, the lead plane pilot Huangzhen Tao De-An Zhao wingman close in under the cover of a burst and damaged a third enemy aircraft.
just two minutes, our clear-cut way down on the damaged three enemy aircraft, the Air Force made “Fujian to combat” the first battle victory.

Transitions before, a young pilot, shooting live ammunition because the first execution, a little nervous. Night, instructor Zheng Huawei to honor room with him, in the “old film” before the brigade fought about the story, tell the older generation of pilots to disregard the heroic deeds of life and death … … to help this pilot to eliminate the psychological tension, threw himself into the task before preparation. Range test day, when he was flying hit the target missile launched, the command and control center burst of cheers sounded. Recalled the matter, the pilot said: “The ‘old film’ brigade is not only the pride, the spiritual wealth of our pilots, it inspires us dare to dare to red, bravery, and writing a new squadron of heroic glory.” Heroic All praise, “Charlie” spirit from generation to generation. Today, a large group has the “old film” wash into the photo, made into a CD-ROM, distributed to each pilot, so that we always remember this glorious history.
