Beijing: When crew members of a passenger plane reported sparks coming from an engine while taxiing at an airport in southern China, eight fire trucks responded within minutes. Then they covered the wrong plane with white foam.
The airport said in a statement that the mistake at the Fuzhou city airport on Thursday was quickly amended and the firefighters turned their attention to the correct plane - an Air China flight.
But the other one - a Fuzhou Airlines flight - was delayed 10 hours and the entire incident delayed 30 flights.
The airport apologized for the inconvenience.
