The Rosamonde was designed by Yang Hsien-yi, the "father of the Chinese air force." It was first test-flown on August 6, 1923, and on August 9 Dr. Sun Yat-sen officially named the airplane "Rosamonde," after the English name of his wife Ms. Soong Ching-ling. Other than an expression of his feelings for Ms. Soong, this plane was also a physical representation of Sun's belief that "without aerial defenses there can be no national defense" and "aviation can save the nation." The Rosamonde was the first two-person biplane bomber designed in the Republic of China, and as such is of great historical significance. Taking the "air force's first plane" as its central creative element, in combination with the eagle, a symbol of aerial powe, this work is suspended in the air, soaring with might to the clouds. Its effect is enhanced by the overall colors of the space and two large murals, ading a striking sensation to the space and infusing the hall with a strongly artistic atmosphere.
