Five people were killed on Wednesday after a seaplane crashed into a bridge during its inaugural flight in China's eastern port city Shanghai, according to local authorities.
Ten people were on board the Joy Air flight when it crashed, authorities in the Jinshan district said. The five other passengers were injured, one critically.
The plane, a Cessna 208B, was headed for Zhoushan in the neighbouring province of Zhejiang.
The passengers - among them officials, entrepreneurs and journalists - were invited guests on the inaugural flight to showcase a new Joy Air venture. The Chinese airline wanted to rent the plane to tourists in the future.
A subsidiary of AVIC Industry Corporation, a state-owned aerospace and defence company, Joy Air is the first company to offer sea planes in China, the Xinhau News Agency reported.
