There can be only 5
This year's PLAAF "Golden Flight Helmet" airpower competition is underway -- instead of 10 winners, this year's grand prize of being the top-dog of the entire air force is now reduced to 5. 170 pilots from all 7 regions now battling it out on top the Gobi Desert for the right to brag. (his family reunion slide show must be unbearable)
Only 10 are awarded each year to Air Force’s top guns who can down
bogies in mock dog fights.
After all those years the PLAAF has finally learned the right way to
build spirit de corps with honors and realistic trainings. So, please no
more empty slogans from now on – they don’t work and they are super
Is me or the color scheme seems "more red than expert"?
