A Russian cargo plane arrived at a U.S. air base in Japan, on its way to China to retrieve the damaged U.S. spy plane.
A team of defense contractors is headed to China's Hainan Island to inspect the damaged American spy plane.
The 24 detained crew members of the downed U.S. surveillance plane may be headed home from China as early as late Wednesday.
The first U.S. contact with the 24 crew members came amid a continuing war of allegations with China over the status of the top-secret aircraft.
