On June 4, 2013, at approximately 1435 local time, American Airlines flight AA187, a Boeing 777-200, N782AN, declared mayday due to fuel emergency while on approach to Beijing Capital International Airport (ZBAA), China.
As AAL187 started its approach to ZBAA, a heavy thunderstorm was present at the airport and AA187 was unable to land. The flight crew determined Tianjin Binhai International Airport (ZBTJ) as an alternate airport, which is about 150km away from ZBAA. However, as the flight approached ZBTJ, it was also fully covered by a heavy thunderstorm, and the crew selected Shijiazhuang Zhengding International Airport (ZBSJ) as a second alternate where they landed uneventually.
