Mao Zedong’s Hakka Pilot

From 1950-1961, Mr Cai Yan Wei logged 5,500 flying hours, achieving all missions and training many young pilots – including China’s first woman fighter pilot Wang Yun (汪云). In his old age he was very healthy and still enjoyed flying. Eventually he visited the Feng Shun area and paid his respects to his Hakka ancestor’s graves.
