Beijing, Nov.14 (People's Daily Online) --A group of 54 military attachés from 51 countries, including Germany, France, the United Kingdom, the United States and Russia, visited the Chinese Aviation Museum located in the northern part of Beijing on Nov. 10.

During the visit, they praised the Chinese air force's great progress in recent years and expressed congratulations on the 62nd founding anniversary of the PLA Air Force.

As China's only and Asia's largest aviation museum, the Chinese Aviation Museum collected more than 300 aircraft of about 200 types and more than 13,000 other weapons, including more than 100 national grade-2 cultural relics.

Furthermore, some new exhibits such as the J-8, JH-7, J-10 and J-11 fighter aircraft as well as the H-9 and H-12 surface-to-air missiles have shown the remarkable development of China's air force weapons over the past 30 years since the reform and opening-up.

"The museum's exhibits showed the history of China's increasingly powerful air force," said Col. Drago Horvat, head of the Defense Staff under the Croatian embassy in China.

Horvat and other military attachés stopped before an aircraft reviewed at the founding ceremony of the People's Republic of China, took pictures in front of the bombers and attack aircrafts that took part in nuclear tests and asked many questions when they saw a model J-10 fighter aircraft. All military attachés said that they were impressed with the development of China's air force.
