Pyongyang, April 12 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, inspected a pursuit assault plane group under the Air and Anti-Aircraft Division in the western area.

Accompanying him were Ri Pyong Chol, vice-chairman of the C.C., WPK, Army General Pak Jong Chon, chief of the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA), and cadres of the C.C., WPK.

He was greeted on the spot by Kim Kwang Hyok, commander of the KPA Air and Anti-Aircraft Force, and commanding officers of the pursuit assault plane group.

The combat pilots were excited with honor, happiness and joy over the inspection by Supreme Leader of the Party, state and armed forces Kim Jong Un, whom they always missed, picturing him even during their flight.

Kim Jong Un learned about the readiness for sortie of the fighters and the performance of duties of airspace defence in the western area.

He expressed great satisfaction to the pursuit assault plane group which is reliably defending the territorial sky of the western area of the country while faithfully performing feats with a one-track mind to repay the trust of the Party and the country. He raised important tasks for further enhancing the combat efficiency of the group after praising their efforts.

He met ace pilots of the group to have a talk.

He repeatedly placed his great trust in them, saying that he entrusted the territorial sky of the country to them. He appealed to the combat pilots to wage a vigorous struggle to possess higher combat aviation and combat power by further equipping themselves with the Juche-oriented tactics indicated by the Party and ratcheting up flight drills with a do-or-die readiness to dedicate their lives to the Party and country.

He watched the drill of the group together with cadres who accompanied him.

The pilots were on cloud nine to make combat navigation before the eyes of the Supreme Leader whom they have been eager to see.

After the commander of the KPA Air and Anti-Aircraft Force gave an order to make a sortie, fighters thundered into the sky.

First, they buzzed the command post, where the Supreme Leader was standing, to extend to him, who has made ceaseless guidance to the frontline for the security of the country and well-being of people, the greatest glory and salute of boundless loyalty cherished by servicepersons of the KPA Air and Anti-Aircraft Force.

Then they conducted a drill of chasing, picking up and downing air targets.

Watching the brave flight and combat activities made by combat pilots together with the cadres, he clapped his hands to express his great satisfaction.

Through the drill, our Party's reliable air fighters showed well that they are ready to make a sortie any moment they received an order, and they, possessed of the spirit of devotedly defending the country and self-blasting spirit, clearly manifested their will to defend the territorial sky by demonstrating their high abilities to perform duty, he said, adding he was deeply moved to see the tireless efforts and devotion of pilots who always remain loyal to the order and call of the Party. And he asked for sending his greetings to all the combat pilots and servicepersons of the group and their families.

The group was full of militant enthusiasm and surging spirit of a-match-for-a-hundred indefatigable fighters to boldly fight any formidable air pirates by steering planes, fully loaded with bombs instead of fuel for return flight, through any unfathomable clouds and flames once ordered by the Supreme Leader.

All the combat pilots and servicepersons of the group made a firm determination to impregnably defend the Party Central Committee and the sacred territorial sky of the country at the cost of their lives as the air fighters loyal to the Supreme Leader, extending the greeting of boundless gratitude to him who has always treasured and loved them and taken warm care of and guided them with trust and affection. -0-
