On Wednesday, China opened the world’s longest high-speed rail line.

The opening of the 2,298 kilometer (1,428 mile)-line was commemorated by the 9 a.m. departure of a train from Beijing for Guangzhou.

Another train left Guangzhou for Beijing an hour later.

Now it takes only half of the time to travel from Beijing to Guangzhou.

A FedEx cargo jet  from Guangzhou, China crashed in Tokyo Narita International Airport, Japan on Monday March 23,2009.

The FedEx jet crashed and burst into a huge fireball maybe bigger than my house when it tried to land at the airport.

I am sorry that the pilot and the co-pilot were killed during the crash and for all the people who lost their letters and parcels .

They must be very sad especially the pilot’s and the co-pilot’s families.

I had been to the Tokyo Narita International Airport on the way to Chicago.

Anyway I had not been to Guangzhou, China.

I think FedEx will try to send new things to the people who lost their things in the plane crash.
