In tribute to the martial arts icon Bruce Lee, Hong Kong-based airline HK Express has named its fifth A321 aircraft (aircraft registration number: B-LEE) âSiu Loongâ (the English transliteration of Bruce Leeâs Chinese stage name).
âWe named our fifth A321 aircraft âSiu Loongâ as a tribute to Bruce Lee and as an inspiration for travellers to embody his fighting spirit in transcending cultural borders,â said Andrew Cowen, director and CEO of HK Express.
âOur Facebook campaign has received a tremendous response as many fans shared their favourite Bruce Lee quotes â a true testament to his lasting legacy as the cityâs first mega international movie star, martial arts icon and philosopher.â
Local artist Stephen Au, well known for his admiration for Bruce Lee, helped to kick-off the aircraft naming celebration by performing the kung fu legendâs signature moves and sharing one of Bruce Leeâs quotes that have inspired him.
To celebrate the first flight of the âSiu Loongâ aircraft on 21 September, guests will receive a souvenir bearing Leeâs signature battle cry âWataaa!â.
