Tai Shan's Itinerary.. sniff

My favorite pic!Washington’s biggest baby and perhaps most loved is leaving.

One week before the scheduled departure of Tai Shan for a new home in the mountains of central China, officials give us play by play of Tai Shan’s trip.

  • Tai Shan will fly Feb. 4 nonstop from Dulles International Airport aboard a giant FedEx 777 F 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.
  • Tai Shan, 4, is the only giant panda born at the zoo to survive beyond infancy, and his departure is breaking the hearts of panda fans across the Washington region.
  • A farewell party is planned at the zoo Saturday, weather permitting, and many private goodbyes will take place in the week before he goes.
