First China Cargo Boeing 777F Arrives at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport after Nonstop Cargo Flight From Shanghai

The first China Cargo flight nonstop from Shanghai, China arrived around 4pm today at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.  In a new cooperative effort between St. Louis and China, a series of up to three or more cargo flights per week is planned, with each flight carrying cargo back and forth from each country.  Locally produced electronic components from St. Louis-based Emerson Electric are included in the return flight to Shanghai.  The Missouri legislature is considering tax incentives to create a cargo hub for additional flights to and from China.  Here are some scenes from today's arrival:
