BEIJING: China's first woman pilot of a J-10 fighter jet has died in a flying accident, an official media report said.
Yu Xu, 30, who was born in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan, was a member of the August 1 aerobatics team of the People's Liberation Army Air Force.
She was one of few female pilots who could fly domestically-made fighter jets, Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported, citing a report by Sichuan Communist Youth League.
Yu's plane plunged to the ground after an unspecified accident, and she was unable to eject in time.
The incident occurred in Hebei province yesterday, the day after China's air force day.
Reports said Yu was flying with a male pilot, who was able to eject but was injured.
So much for the Chinese Quality..!!!!
poor soul .. RIP..
The Chinese female pilot was very brave. However, I have to say the world bravest pilots are all in IAF. IAF crashed 1000 planes during the past 50 years. Every pilot in IAF is a good parachutist. Incredibly, India herself cannot make any usable fighter jet (please forgive me ignoring LAC, which is just a joke), but they are able to crash so many different kinds of world famous aircraft, including C-130！
Strongly suggest IAF to apply for Guinness World Records for crashing aircraft.
Well It was a Made In China Air Plane.... No surprises here...: China should make its AirPlanes in India. Made In India is more reliable
I wish none of my Indian Brothers and Sister here makes fun of this incident. RIP. We are culturaly connected but politically seperated nations.
Very sad. Rest in peace sister.
