Hu Dingyuan, 97, is greeted after he arrives at the Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport in Chengdu city, the capital of Southwest China's Sichuan province, April 19, 2017. Cheng fought in the war against the aggression of Japanese forces and then in 1946 went to Taiwan as the Kuomintang forces retreated from the mainland to the island. He has never been back to his hometown in Luzhou City, Sichuan, in 77 years. In early March, his granddaughter sought help online to find relatives on the mainland. With the help of many people, Hu was able to return to Sichuan and will meet more than 80 family members, including three nephews. [Photo/VCG]
