Bei Bei the giant panda is leaving the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington, D.C., for a new home in China on Tuesday. As part of an agreement with the China Wildlife Conservation Association, all panda cubs at the National Zoo move to China at 4 years old. Bei Bei will make the 15-hour-plus flight aboard the appropriately named FedEx Panda Express, a custom-decaled Boeing 777 Freighter aircraft, out of Virginia’s Dulles International Airport. A panda keeper and veterinarian will accompany Bei Bei on his nonstop flight to Chengdu, monitoring him and providing him treats like apples, carrots and sweet potatoes, according to the zoo.
