After 9 days & 6,000 miles on the Trans-Siberian Railroad, 41 Americans defy the travel ban to show the first US flag to enter China since 1949 as young Chinese cheer their arrival at the Beijing Station. The flag, made by the Russians for the Moscow Youth Festival, was "borrowed" by the Americans

for the trip to China.  The flag, plus film of the event, have been contributed to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC.
