    Background: Japan and The People's Republic of China began their first regular air link on Sunday (29 September) when a Chinese Civil Aviation Administration Boeing 707 jet aircraft landed at Tokyo, the Japanese capital, from Peking, the Chinese capital. The aircraft carried a 98-member goodwill mission, including Chinese Communist Party Central Committee member Wang Chen, on the nearly five-hour journey.

    The flight came two years after Japan and China established diplomatic relations, and five months after the two countries established a civil aviation agreement.
