Description:
Miss Macao was a Catalina seaplane, owned by Cathay Pacific and operated by a subsidiary. On 16 July 1948 she became the victim of the first hijacking of a commercial aircraft. Piracy for robbery and ransom was the motive.

The lone survivor, Huang Yu (, Hanyu Pinyin: Huáng Yù, Cantonese: Wong Yu), was brought to court by the Macau police, but the Macau court suggested that the prosecution should be brought in Hong Kong instead, since the plane was registered in Hong Kong and most of the passengers were from there. However, the British colonial government in Hong Kong stated that the incident happened over Chinese territory in which the British have no jurisdiction. Since no state claimed authority to try him, Huang was released without trial from Macau prison on June 11, 1951, and was then deported to China.
