Air force bosses in China laid on a Gangnam Style party to help their top recruits find girlfriends

People's Army top brass selected the high flying single 150 air force officers for the bash in Wuhan, Hubei province, as a reward for coming top of their training classes.

There they met 150 local girls, specially selected as potential brides for the officers.

The couples danced along to global sensation Gangnam Style, which has swept through China as one of the country's biggest hits.

"It is a chance for the best of our men to let their hair down and meet women who could one day be their brides.

"It's difficult for people in the military to meet partners so we like to help," explained one official.
