Aussie captain brings medical supplies to virus-hit Wuhan
Myles Bernard Weston, an Australian captain with Xiamen Airlines, added special significance to the charter flight MF8779 Thursday, as he is one of the first foreign pilots to fly to Wuhan since the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). At 10 a.m., the airplane took off from the city of Xiamen, east China's Fujian Province, and headed to Wuhan, the COVID-19 epicenter in central China's Hubei Province, carrying 11,259 kg of supplies for the Fujian medical team assisting in Wuhan. This is also among the first charter flights on the Chinese mainland transporting daily supplies to medical teams assisting the virus-plagued city. The captain, from Australia's Brisbane, has been working for Xiamen Airlines for one and a half years. While many other foreign captains are on holiday, Weston chooses to stay in Xiamen.
