Late fighter jet director honored as "most beautiful"


09:29, December 18, 2012

BEIJING, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- Senior Communist Party of China (CPC) official Liu Yunshan on Monday praised a recently deceased fighter jet production director as "a most beautiful Chinese."

Luo Yang, head of production for China's new J-15 fighter jet, had a heart attack after spending days observing landing tests for the J-15 aboard China's first aircraft carrier. He died in hospital on Nov. 25 at age 51.

"Most beautiful Chinese" is a term created by the public to honor contemporary role models and heros, and Luo deserves such a title, said Liu, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.

On behalf of General Secretary Xi Jinping and the CPC Central Committee, Liu offered condolences to Luo's wife and mother prior to a lecture on Luo's experiences, which was held at the Great Hall of the People on Monday morning.

Liu described Luo as an outstanding Chinese with strong beliefs and a down-to-earth work style.

He called on officials and the public to learn from Luo's spirit of dedication and hard work, in order to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
