Mao's Plane Will Make Room for Parking Lots

World Journal, Posted: Sep 27, 2008

BEJING -- Mao Zedong's plane has generated complaints from local storekeepers, which made the owner of the plane decide to sell the plane to make room for parking lot construction, reports the World Journal. Former Chinese President Zedong's plane has been parked in the city of Zhuhau, Guangdong Province for nine years. Zedong's plane was one of the three planes that the Chinese Air Force purchased from Pakistan in 1969. It has been used exclusively by the former president and became a display item in Beijing after Zedong died. Zhuhai East Group Company bought it in 1999 and moved it to Zhuhai City.
