Captain brings formation of helicopters to hometown

A formation of 10 military helicopters and transport helicopters flew over the city of Xiantao in Central China's Hubei province Wednesday and performed stunt flying in a rare effort to pay tribute to the hometown of an air force captain, reported Thursday.

The fleet was headed by Capt. Xu Desheng, who opened the Sept 3 military parade in Beijing by leading his helicopter formation to fly over Tian'anmen Square.

The 40-year-old requested a special detour on his way back to the military base to pay tribute to his hometown.
