CHOPPER CHECKER

A technician makes last-minute checks on a Eurocopter EC120B prior to a demonstration flight on Tuesday on the outskirts of Beijing. Gleaming new helicopters and planes worth millions of US dollars are lined up at Beijing’s first “aircraft supermarket.” The dealership opened this week in a cluster of buildings surrounded by farmland on the edge of the capital, offering a range of small aircraft aimed at business executives, priced at up to 50 million yuan (about US$8 million).Apr 05, 2013
