Plane Stupidity

Anyone actually in Liuzhou last night, the 12th July 2017, can’t have missed the military plane(s) which buzzed the city at low altitude for hours. As I recall, they started late afternoon and went on until well after dark.

How many planes were involved, I don’t know. And the image above may well be a very different Chinese plane.

The military air wing operate from Liuzhou airport (ha! you thought it was for passenger flights to and from Shanghai!)

About once a year or so, they put on this display of force. I’m not sure for whose benefit. I’m sure the pilot(s) had fun. They just kept me awake.

    On the night in question I was at Yao Bu Gu Zhen drinking beer and noticed the planes were flying over on lots of 6. I suspect it was the same blokes circling around. Off topic my companion and I were enjoying some excellent Portuguese lager, a welcome change from the ubiquitous German wheat beer

    They were still flying over my apartment complex at 11.15pm. Low-altitude, night time flying, over a built up urban area!
