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 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?

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?)

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".

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

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.

NO shit...it's an American company! And yes, they did report on the crashes in the Sudan. I watch CNN nearly everyday and they report just about everything they can. You can't honestly tell me that a Russian news agency is fair and balanced in reporting the world's news...no Russian twist at all?

Come on buddy, its all politics. Every news source in the world has a slight slant towards their nationality. My only exception to this would have to be the BBC, which seems to be one of the most fair sources of news...like you mentioned.

But, if I were able to get BBC here I would gladly change from CNN to it. I can't, so I make do with what we have. However, just because something isn't readily accessible on a news agency's website DOESN'T mean they didn't report it or attempt to discover the truth.

Of course, with the exception of Fox News, which is a lame sorry excuse for anything in existence.  Big thumbs up

Actually, no they didn't.

http://aviation-safety.net/database/2004/040512-0.htm

There was no mention of this crash at all.

It was reported by Sudanese media, then South African (IOL), then Russian (RIA Novosti), then Chinese (Xinhua). At no stage was it ever reported by CNN nor the BBC.

You can't honestly tell me that a Russian news agency is fair and balanced in reporting the world's news...no Russian twist at all?

I'm not saying that. Never have, never will.

But just because it was reported, so far, on a Russian news website, don't doubt it didn't occur. I have seen news reported on Russian news sites in the past which deal with Australia, and have never been reported here.

Also, if anyone noticed, the Gazeta report is credited to Reuters.

And here it is:

http://www.reuters.com/locales/c_newsHome.jsp?localeKey=ru_RU

It wasn't on the English site, but it is now:

Now, don't get me wrong here. I would like to be able to watch Russian news any day, if I could speak Russian. So I don't mean to put down any of your news agencies. I'm sure they are very reliable, or else they wouldn't be as popular as they are.

But, first of all before I forget, the first link you put has nothing to do with news agencies. I remember watching the coverage a month or two ago, maybe more, on CNN's Headline News...which is simply an abbreviated version of all the news stories in the world. They DID report on it. The link you put is for the accident report...it would never mention anything about a news agency.

Secondly, thanks for that link because I couldn't find mine to that site.

Third, it's all the same to me...and probably you too!  Big thumbs up As long as someone reports the news as accurately as possible, I don't care where they broadcast from or what language its in. Although, since I am rather illiterate when it comes to foreign languages...it would be nice to have it in English.  Big thumbs up

At the moment, Gazeta has already updated its English website, and I still can't find anything on CNN...

so the score is:
Gazeta-2, CNN-0

Amusing,

This story is on CNN.com easily found by going to the Asia/Pacific news section of their website:

http://edition.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/asiapcf/07/26/china.hijacking.reut/index.html

Also, CNN is available in Spanish, Korean, Arabic, Japanese, and Turkish. German is also availble from their partner, n-tv. Not as much as BBC, but more than just English.

It turns out this was a guy with mental problems who threatened to pour sulphuric acid over all the passenegrs if the flight didnt go to South Korea.

Police met the flight at Zhengzou and arrested the man and the flight continued.

OK guys.. here's another press release, this time from a French source. Here it is:

A man with a history of mental illness attempted to hijack an Air China plane after it took off from Beijing Monday, demanding to be flown to South Korea or he would spray passengers with sulfuric acid.

"Fifty minutes after take off a young man ... claimed that he wanted to hijack the plane and fly to South Korea," the Civil Aviation Administration of China said in a statement.

"To ensure the safety of the airplane the plane made an emergency landing at Zhengzhou at 9:50 am (0150 GMT). The police took the man off the plane."

According to the Xinhua news agency, the man, Yang Jingsong, 32, claimed he was carrying sulfuric acid and threatened to douse passengers with the liquid if his demands were not met.

He made the threats as he walked down the aisle toward the forward compartment, the agency said.

The CAAC said that after searching the man and the plane when it landed in Zhengzhou no "dangerous items" were found.

The Boeing 737-300, CA 1343, was flying from the capital to Changsha in Hunan province.

While no explanation was given on how Yang was restrained or calmed down, Xinhua said the crew managed to convince him that the plane had to land in Zhengzhou in central Henan province because of dangerous weather conditions.

It later continued its journey after Yang was arrested.

"After checks it was found the man has a history of mental illness," said the CAAC, without elaborating. Xinhua said Yang worked as a clerk in the library at Xiangtin University in Hunan province.

An official at Zhengzhou airport added: "The reason and the nature of this issue are still trying to be understood, but everything is now okay and safe."

China has witnessed a number of hijack attempts in recent years, most recently in February last year when a man poured fuel hidden in a drinks can on the cabin aisle of an Air China fight from Beijing to Fuzhou city in the southeast.

The man demanded to be taken to Taiwan.

He managed to set seats on fire before being subdued by security personnel onboard and the plane landed safely with its 149 passengers at Fuzhou airport.

Not all in-flight sabotage attempts have had happy endings.

In May 2002, a cancer patient deliberately started a fire on a passenger plane in an apparent suicide attempt so his family could cash in on the flight insurance he purchased before boarding.

As a result, the plane plunged into the ocean minutes before it was scheduled to land in Dalian city in the northeast, killing 103 passengers and nine crew members.

Earlier this year, aviation officials said China was planning to set up a dedicated 2,000-member air marshal force, first considered in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

They were scheduled to be on aircraft by the middle of the year, but whether this has actually happened remains unclear."

Like I said before, no matter what nationality you are, you better know English if you are going to take to the skies. Also, I doubt you'll ever hear Cleveland Tower ask you to "...repeat in Madarin, please."  Big thumbs up

English is much more of a common language in terms of business, especially aviation.

Indeed. It is the language of science as well, but that is only because of us Americans, the majority only know English, where many other Europeans and Asians speak multiple languages (English just being one).

As far as population in regard to commonality, English is third behind Chinese and Spanish (or behind Hindi, Spanish, and Chinese depending on the list).

To wonder why a Russian news site doesn't automatically translate their page into English is stupid. How many American pages translate theirs into Chinese or Hindi or Spanish (Spanish being the most likely choice) or Russian?

It just shows ethnocentric egotism.

Mandarin is the common language of the Chinese. There are so many different provinces in China (Xinjiang, Yunnan, Guandong, Sichuan, Shanxi, Shaanxi, Shandong, Fujian, Jilin, Guangxi, etc, plus Tibet, and Inner Mongolia) so over time, people developed their own dialect.

The common language is Mandarin, but when you visit different provinces, you can also hear people speaking a "different" type of Chinese.


Interesting news . . .
