China's first hang gliding man Wang Yong, has successfully flown over Jiaozhou Bay in Qingdao, Shandong Province. He made the feat on Sunday, following his conquest of Guzhou in the Gobi Desert in May.

The dynamic hang gliding, with 9.6-meter wings, can fly about one and a half hours. Wang Yong began to fly at half past eight from Jiaozhou Bay and landed on Stone Old Man Sea 40 minutes later. He said flying over the sea was more difficult than his previous mission because of the complicated airflow. He's happy that the clear weather on Sunday made perfect conditions for gliding.

Wang Yong learned the flight technique of dynamic hang gliding in France back in 2010. He now has plans to the cross the Qiongzhou Strait in Southern Hainan Province next month.
