Biography

[1] On 3 June 2006, a PLAAF KJ-200 crashed in Guangde County, Anhui Province, killing 40 people on board. Jiang was among about a dozen military officers who were held responsible and punished in the aftermath of the accident. He was given demerit points which damaged his prospect for promotion, and his career was temporarily frozen. [2] [3] Nevertheless, he was promoted to the rank of lieutenant general in July 2006, before the punishment was announced. [1]

In January 2011, Jiang was appointed commander of the Beijing MR Air Force and deputy commander of the Beijing MR. [1] He retired from active service in July 2012, after reaching the mandatory retirement age of 63 for deputy military region (DMR) commanders. He was replaced by Ma Zhenjun. [4]
