In Wednesday's Papers: Jet Lands at Sichuan Gas Station, Buys 194 Yuan Worth of Fuel; Six Districts, Counties Told to Stop Land Seizures

Plane Lands at Sichuan Gas Station, Buys 194 Yuan Worth of Fuel

A small propeller plane landed at a gas station in Beichuan County, in the southwestern province of Sichuan, and bought 194 yuan worth fuel on the morning of April 8, a gas station employee said. Two pilots were in the plane, which took off from and landed on a highway. Witnesses posted photos of the episode online. The local general aviation regulator launched an investigation and found that the plane belongs to the Sichuan subsidiary of U.S.-based George Heintz Aircraft Manufacturing Co., which was testing it. The regulator said the unorthodox pit stop may have broken rules. Sichuan is the home of 12 general aviation companies operating 268 planes, the most in the country.
