    Background: A Japanese airliner left Tokyo airport today (Saturday) for Peking carrying communication and broadcasting technicians who will prepare for Prime Minister Tanaka's visit to China scheduled for later this mont.

    The chartered All Nippon Airways jet flew to Peking via Shanghai. It's the first of seven flights carrying equipment and officials to Peking this month.

    Twenty-four technicians aboard will install a communication satellite ground station near Peking airport for live television coverage of the Japanese Prime Minister's visit. Other passengers included a Japanese trade delegation.

    Also going aboard in this morning's drizzle were a pair each of chimpanzees and black swans for presentation to the Peking Zoo under an animal exchange programme. Because of the rain, the animals were kept in their cages for the loading operation.

    Prime Minister Tanaka is expected to leave Tokyo about September 23rd for an official visit to China to discuss normalisation of relations between the two Asian neighbours.
