Adjust font size:

The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) plans to send two remote-sensing planes to photograph the situation in the northwestern part of Sichuan Province, according to the PLA headquarters.

But the military aircrafts have to postpone their mission due to bad weather in areas around Wenchuan County, which was devastated by a powerful earthquake measuring 7.8 degrees on the Richter scale at 14:28 Monday.
