Washington Post Live Chat with FedEx: Shipping Pandas to China

Tai Shan will fly Feb. 4 nonstop from Dulles International Airport aboard a giant FedEx 777F air freighter. The plane will be mostly empty, reserved especially for him and one other panda, and will have big black and white panda logos painted on its fuselage. Dave Lange, managing director of aircraft charters at FedEx, was online Friday, Jan. 29, at 1 p.m. ET to discuss all the details of Tai Shan's 8,642 mile airplane journey to his new home in the mountains of central China.
