SHENYANG, Nov. 26 (Xinhua) -- Luo Yang, the head of production for China's new J-15 fighter jet, died of a heart attack on Sunday, China's Shenyang Aircraft Corp. (SAC) confirmed on Monday.

Luo experienced a sudden heart attack while participating in flight landing exercises for China's first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, around noon on Sunday, according to the obituary issued by the SAC, a subsidiary of China's state-owned aircraft maker, the Aviation Industry Corp. of China.

He had a heart attack onboard the carrier, and later died in hospital at the age of 51, the obituary said.

Luo, chairman and general manager of the SAC, headed the manufacturing and production phase of the J-15 fighter jet.

On Monday, flags were flown at half-mast at the gates of the SAC, which is based in Shenyang, capital of northeast China's Liaoning Province.

"Mourn General Manager Luo Yang. Luo will be immortal," read the electronic screen at the gates of the corporation, which is dubbed the "cradle of China's fighter jets."

The homepage of the SAC's website was turned black and white to mourn Luo on Monday.
