Qing Dao Airlines stewardesses after foiling a separatist hijacking attempt by two men. "They weren't very good," recalled Meilin Yang (far right). "Their guns weren't real, and after 20 minutes, they decided to surrender." The female crew took charge of the men, tying them up securely in the back of the plane, and alerting the captain who radioed ahead to Beijing Airport. Qing Dao intend to reward the crew's bravery.
