On April 8, 1946, representatives of the Communist Party of China Wang Ruofei and Qin Bangxian who participated in the Chongqing Kuomintang-Communist peace talks flew back to Yan'an from Chongqing on an American transport plane. Because of the clouds and fog, the plane lost its way and accidentally crashed into the Heicha Mountain in Xing County, Shanxi. All 17 people, including 4 American crew members, were killed. They were called "four to eight" martyrs in history. The "April 8" air crash shocked both China and foreign countries, and mourning activities arose across the country. A cemetery of martyrs was built later to commemorate.
