CAAC Flight 2311 was a scheduled passenger flight from Changsha Huanghua International Airport to the former Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport. On 24 December 1982 it was flown by an Ilyushin Il-18B (registered in China as B-202), when after landing at Baiyun Airport a cabin fire produced toxic smoke whereupon the crew stopped the aircraft on the runway and evacuated the passengers.[1] The fast-developing fire killed 25 passengers and seriously injured 22 passengers and four crew members.[1] The fire, which was started by a passenger's cigarette, destroyed the aircraft.[1]


The aircraft B-202 was an Ilyushin Il-18B four-engined turboprop built in the Soviet Union in 1959.
