The bodies of two Republic of China Air Force pilots who were killed in a crash last week
were received by grieving family members at the Air Force Academy yesterday.
The bodies of 32-year-old Major Wang Ching-chun (王勁鈞) and 23-year-old First Lieutenant Huang Chun-jung (黃俊榮) were flown from the crash site in Hualien to the academy in Kaohsiung.
The pilots were killed after their AT-3 training aircraft crashed in mountainous terrain during a routine training flight.
The tearful fathers of the pilots waited on the tarmac at the academy and murmured to their fallen loved ones after they were unloaded, while air force personnel stood at attention.
The bodies were sent by ambulance to a funeral parlor. [FULL STORY]
