    Is it just me or do they actually all look like they are from the north (as has been claimed by various sources that the PLANAF has a region-specific recruitment preference)?

    Look more fresh recruit coming from flight school and not from experience ex PLAAF pilot . Recently they advertised for pilot among high school leaver all over the country
    Could be the case that people around Dalian are more enthusiastic about this program understandably
