Production head of China's new fighter jet dies of heart attack (2)


10:34, November 27, 2012

His abrupt death came shortly after the J-15 fighter jet successfully landed on the aircraft carrier in exercises.

Since being delivered to the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy on Sept. 25, the carrier has undergone a series of sailing and technological tests, including the flight of the carrier-borne J-15.

Meng Jun, chairman of AVIC Shenyang Liming Aepo-Engine (Group) Corporation LTD., said he spent eight days on the carrier with Luo from Nov. 18. Luo worked all day and night and bore enormous psychological pressures during those days, according to Meng.

Colleagues of Luo observed he had always been in good shape, and liked sports when he was young. But he overworked himself on duty.

Luo returned to China's northeastern city of Shenyang on the afternoon of Nov. 17 from the southern Guangdong Province after attending an airplane exhibition there. He had no time to go back to his home but headed instead to the base of the J-15 fighter jet for test flight preparations.

Chu Xiaowen, an official of AVIC Shenyang Liming Aepo-Engine (Group) Corporation LTD., who also worked with Luo, said his late colleague analyzed testing data and watched the flying and landing processes, and recorded the condition of the jet every day.
