Thanks for the update and the FlightAware info, SWINWK!

Current image from FlightAware. I am surprised they didn't fly over the arctic.

:buzzybee: Excerpt from "The Hill":

"Bei Bei's new keepers will meet the giant panda when he arrives in China, where he will be quarantined for approximately 30 days. He will enter the giant panda breeding program between six and seven years old. Bei Bei was born Aug. 22, 2015, at the National Zoo to parents Mei Xiang and Tian Tian"

:buzzybee: Excerpt from the "South China Morning Post" in interview with Laurie Thompson, assistant curator of giant pandas, National Zoo:

Once they get to China, she said, she wants to tell the new Chinese keepers about Bei Bei’s quirks – how he likes to climb trees, doesn’t like his feet to be touched and detests frozen bananas. “I don’t know if they’ll give him bananas,” she said.

Bei Bei has arrived safely in China.
Our animal care team will go with Bei Bei to his new home and
stay with him for a few days at the Bifengxia Panda Base.
Thank you to transport provider FedEx and their crew!
Thank you to all for supporting our panda team and for the outpouring of well wishes

:buzzybee: One place to follow Bei Bei after his quarantine will be "My Panda Tour" on facebook for the occasional peek. Today there is a video of Bao Bao doing the "standing in place" pace that her mother Mei does at the door when she wants something she's not getting. Bao Bao was doing it against a stone wall. Also, further down on the page from 11/7/19 there is a photo of Tai Shan, Mei and Tian Tian's other son in China. And below that is a photo of Bao Bao and another video of her. Also, saw Mr. Wu from San Diego even further down. They said neither Bao Bao or Tai Shan are parents yet. In one video someone asked why Bao Bao had more toys than the other pandas. I think I heard the answer being that she is from America or "American" and has many fans around the world from the unknown gentleman. Also, I thought I heard the tour guide say she was very independent whereas Tai Shan is close to his keeper.
