Chinese Made Plane Skids Off Runway In Shanghai

Wed Dec 12, 2001 11:16 pm

Saw this on the news in Hong Kong just now. Didn't manage to catch the details, but they showed this plane which seemed to be damaged and off the runway. They said it was a Chinese made plane and it happened at the old Shanghai airport.

It's a Y-8 of Chinese (or China?) Postal Airlines... that's what I saw on TV just now.
