Pyongyang, April 12 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, inspected Unit 814 of the Air Force of the KPA. Conducted by the commander of the unit, he went round the monument to the on-the-spot guidance of President Kim Il Sung and a room dedicated to the history of the unit.
Seeing the historic relics and mementoes associated with the footprints of Kim Il Sung, he said that the undying revolutionary feats performed by Kim Il Sung in building the nation's air force will brilliantly shine with the history of the matchless air force of the DPRK.
He acquainted himself with the unit's performance of duty before watching pilots and technical personnel in training at a technical lecture hall.
He highly praised the feats of the unit, greatly satisfied to learn that it has fully prepared all the pilots as self-blasting airmen through a dynamic drive to thoroughly implement the military line of the WPK. He set forth tasks to be carried out by the unit to increase its combat capability.
He inspected the hero squadron to learn about the ideological education conducted by it and its combat preparedness. Pleased to know that the pilots always remain on the high alert and are fully ready to beat back any enemy's attack, he praised them for reliably standing guard over the sky over the country.
All the admirable airmen are strong in faith and ideology as their hearts are burning with the patriotic resolution to devote their youth and lives to defending the country, he said, adding that such ranks of loyalists are reliably defending the blue sky over the country.
Then he went round the army-people power station newly built by servicepersons. He was briefed on the power station before going round its exterior and interior including the generator room and the electricity distribution room to acquaint himself in detail with its construction and the production of electricity there. The technical and equipment management of the power station should be improved to boost the production of quality electricity, he said, advancing the tasks to do so. He had a photo session with the servicepersons of the unit.
He was accompanied by KPA Generals Ri Myong Su, Hyon Chol Hae and Pak Jae Gyong, Vice Department Director of the WPK Central Committee Hwang Pyong So and Col. General O Kum Chol, commander of the Air Force of the KPA.
