With Zhengzhou airport declaring emergency and an Air China flight being forced to make a landing in central China caused quite a stir in the middle kingdom.
It is said that the landing was forced for unspecified “public security” reason Sunday.
But the passengers made it safely off the plane.
It was said that Beijing-bound Flight 1350 landed in Zhengzhou city at 10 a.m. due to an illegal interference.
The flight was scheduled to land in Beijing at 11 a.m.
In its brief report on Weibo, state broadcaster China Central Television included an image of what appeared to be paramilitary police in combat uniforms and helmets assembled outside a Zhengzhou airport hotel.
Certain news media reported that disturbance occurred in the first or business class cabins but that the curtains separating those sections from economy class were pulled tightly shut.>
