Born in the Mulan County of Harbin city, 86-year-old Ma Xu is the first female paratrooper in China, and the oldest female paratrooper to have conducted a maiden jump – at the age of 30.
In her career(职业) spanning over two decades, Ma Xu had completed(完成) more than 140 jumps, the most among her peers ever.

Before becoming a paratrooper, Ma had served as a surgeon(医生) in China's military forces. She had served in many wars(战争) including the Korean War.
