Pyongyang, March 20 (KCNA) -- The dark cloud of a war hangs over the Korean Peninsula due to the reckless war drills staged by the U.S. and the south Korean puppet group against the DPRK, but the airspace above it will always remain clear and blue.
The clear and blue sky over the country would have been unthinkable without the immortal feats performed by the peerlessly great persons in founding and developing the air force of the Korean People's Army (KPA).
After the country's liberation from Japan's colonial rule, President Kim Il Sung declared the birth of the Juche-oriented air force in his historic speech "Let Us Create the Air Force of the New Korea".
In mid-March Juche 35 (1946), he saw to it that an aviation class was organized at the Pyongyang Institute and formed the first air corps in 1947.
During the Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953), the heroic KPA air force achieved such great feats as shooting down a number of "B-29"s, the so-called "flying fortress", and dashing a burning plane into a U.S. war vessel to sink it in the sea off Inchon, humbling the pride of the U.S. imperialists.
In 1952 alone, they brought down and damaged hundreds of enemy planes.
The Korean people still remember the great feats performed by the KPA air force in shooting down the U.S. spying plane "EC-121", which intruded deep into the DPRK's airspace, in 1960s and driving "RC-135" away in 2003.
In the period of Songun (military-first) leadership, leader Kim Jong Il paid ceaseless visits to KPA air units and sub-units in order to develop the KPA air force into an elite force equipped with ever-victorious strategy and tactics, bold offensive spirit and actual war capability.
Kim Jong Un, supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, convened the meeting of airpersons of the KPA for the first time in the history of KPA building.
Now the KPA air force, armed with the spirit of devotedly defending the leader and the spirit of acting as human bullets and bombs, is now awaiting the order of the supreme commander. -0-
