The news source is www.gazeta.ru which quotes the Chinese Civil Aviation authority "An Air China plane has been hijacked" . That's all it says.

I cannot find anything either. According to that site, the story was filled about 15 minutes ago, and I would suspect that other sources would know by now.

I don't have any information on this either. I can't find anything anywhere about it. I just spoke with a friend of mine at CNN and he says they've had no reports either.

I checked the site listed, but its in Russian. Is their an English version?

According to the same news source the spokesman for the CCAA said that the situation has been solved succesfully and they are now investigating.

www.gazeta.ru is very reliable and they sometimes get their news faster than anyone else.

Why would a site in Russia report on a Chinese hijacking (that seemed to have ended quickly, so it was nothing that major) and not have anything in English?  Insane

www.gazeta.ru is similar to www.cnn.com, so that might be the reason why they are telling us about the events that are taking place all over the world. Unfortunately the english section of the site is not updated as often as the russian one.

But the whole hijacking thing does seem a bit weird.

And just why would a Russian news site be expected to publish its news contents in English? (Does CNN publish in Mandarin Chinese, Swahili or Russian simultaneously with its English-language broadcasts?)

Yes, especially since it seemed to have ended so quickly.

Is this a hoax or something? I have looked all over the net and there is nothing. Hopefully it is a hoax, I'd hate for this to be real.

It was just awkward that such a new source which "knows" things before other sources would not have an English forum. About CNN: The last time I checked, English is a pretty common language in the world.  Big grin

For the record, I never brought CNN into any of this, but they do certainly have a pretty good and well-earned reputation.

Translation:

An Air china aircraft was hijacked in China. According to the press secretary of the CCAA it was a B737 flight number CA 1343 Chansha-Peking. The plane landed at Chenjou airport at 10:00 local time. "The situation was resolved succesfully. We are investigating the incident".

No, you didn't. Someone else did when they said that CNN would never translate into Mandarin Chinese, Swahili or Russian and didn't understand why us dumb yanks would ever hope for a Russian site to translate into English.

Although, the Ruskies better know some English when checking in with ATC, but I doubt you'll hear Cleveland Tower say "...repeat in Russian please."  Big thumbs up

Cheers!

Also, CNN is joke.

There is no mention of several aircraft crashes in Sudan in the last months, which were otherwise reported by both Russian and Chinese news services -- RIA Novosti and Xinhua, respectively.

CNN.com only reports articles which will be of (at least some) interest to the American market.
