Several Internet sources give the launch date of the SinoSat-3 satellite as May 2007. At this point only the Space Calendar and the Space Launcher site (http://www.space-launcher.com/Schedule.html) point to a April 17th launch date...

The possible Chinese launch schedule:

17 April (?) - CZ-3A - Xichang - Sinosat-3
19 May - CZ-3B - Xichang - Nigcomsat-1
May - CZ-4B - Taiyuan - CBERS-2B
June - CZ-2C/2 - Xichang - HJ-1A; HJ-1B
July - CZ-2D - Jiuquan - FSW-23
July - KT-1 (KT-2?) - Taiyuan - PS-2
August - CZ-3B - Xichang - RascomStarQAF-1
September - CZ-3A - Xichang - Chang'e-1
September / October - CZ-3B - Xichang - Chinasat-9
