The first jet powered aircraft to reach Hong Kong and possibly China is believed to be a Royal Air Force de Havilland Vampire fighter flown up from Singapore in January 1949.

Unfortunately, the pilot missed Hong Kong and overshot. With a lack of fuel, he was forced to land on a beach at Bias Bay in Chinese territory.
