Beijing, Nov.10 (People's Daily Online) -- On Nov. 8, a skydiving performance was conducted by Army's August 1 Skydiving Team.

61 years ago the new-born People's Air Force was dispatched to the battlefield of Korea to resist U.S. aggression. During the war, the People's Air Force set a new aerial combat record in world military history.

Many fighter jets, such as the Chang Xiangyu Fighter Jet, the Oil Workers Fighter Jet and the Cotton Farmers Fighter Jet were contributed by the masses. An old woman from Tangshan City of Hebei province denoted all her money, seven silver dollars, to the People's Air Force to buy fighters.

After 62 years of development, the People's Air Force has become a modern air force with multiple types of aircraft capable of offensive and defensive combats under informatization conditions.
