    Background: AN AIR FORCE UNIT OF THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC SHOT DOWN "AN INVADING US-MADE F-104 FIGHTER AIRCRAFT OF THE CHIANG KAI SHEK GANG" OVER EAST CHINA ON JANUARY 13, ACCORDING TO THE OFFICIAL COMMENTARY WITH THIS FILM ON JANUARY 22 A RALLY WAS HELD TO CELEBRATE THE INCIDENT.

    THE COMMENTARY SAYS THE LOSS OF THE AIRCRAFT IS THE LATEST IN A SERIES OF "IGNOMINIOUS DEFEATS" FOR "U.S. IMPERIALISM" AND THE "CHIANG KAI-SHEK GANG." ONE MEMBER OF THE SUCCESSFUL UNIT CALLED IT "A VICTORY OF THE INVINCIBLE THOUGHT OF MAO TSE-TUNG." HE CALLED ON ALL FIGHTERS AND COMMANDERS "TO HOLD STILL HIGHER THE GREAT RED BANNER OF MAO TSE-TUNG'S THOUGHT, TO RAISE THEIR VIGILANCE A HUNDRED-FOLD, TO ENHANCE THEIR PREPAREDNESS FOR WAR AND TO BE READY TO WIPE OUT ANY ENEMY THAT DARED TO INVADE."
    MEMBERS OF THE SUCCESSFUL UNIT WERE PRESENTED WITH AWARDS, AND AN ORDER COMMENDING THE MEN WAS READ OUT BY HAN HSIEN-CHU, DEPUTY CHIEF OF THE GENERAL STAFF OF THE PEOPLE'S LIBERATION ARMY.
