China Eastern Airlines Crash: This Plane Crash ended China Safe Flight Record of 4227 days, NTSB Team Appointed

China Eastern Airlines Boeing 737 Crash

A China Eastern Boeing 737 carrying 132 people crashed Monday afternoon in South China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, igniting a mountain fire, ending a record of 4,227 safe flight days in the history of civil aviation globally.

No Chance of Servival, All killed

All 132 people on board the airplane died in this fatal crash. Official announcement not yet done. The flight data showed the jet lost its radar information two minutes after it abruptly plummeted from its cruise altitude of roughly 8,869 metres. The jet almost vertically crashed to the jungle, according to an unsubstantiated footage that surfaced online.

Last Fatal Crash

After a fatal accident in Yichun, Heilongjiang Province, Northeast China on August 24, 2010, this is the first aviation crash in China. The Yichun crash claimed the lives of 44 individuals.

President Xi Jinping Ordered Emergency Reaction

According to Xinhua News Agency, Chinese President Xi Jinping ordered all-out search and rescue efforts shortly after the disaster. Xi ordered that an emergency reaction be launched immediately, as well as all-out search and rescue activities and the correct settlement of the aftermath.

The State Council, China's cabinet, said it will assign officials to deal with the disaster as quickly as possible, identify the cause, and intensify the investigation of safety threats in the civil aviation sector to ensure the absolute safety of future aviation operations and people's lives.

To mourn the tragedy, China Eastern Airlines' main website was turned black and white, and it conveyed its heartfelt sympathies to the passengers and staff members onboard, as well as promising to actively co-operate with the inquiry.

Flight Details of Ill-fated Aircraft

The jet, flight MU5735, took off at 13:15 from Kunming Changshui airport in Yunnan Province, Southwest China, and was expected to arrive at 15:07 in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, South China.

Onboard were 132 individuals, including 123 passengers and nine crew members.

As per the video viral on social media, the plane fell from the skies vertically. Even though video shoot from a long distance away, I could tell it was a plane. The plane did not release smoke during the fall; instead, it crashed into the mountains and ignited a fire, which resulted in a large amount of smoke.

After taking off from Kunming airport, the plane was seen travelling at an altitude of roughly 8,869 metres, according to flight data from information provider VariFlight. At 2:19 p.m., the aircraft abruptly fell from cruising altitude, and its flying speed began to drop from around 845 km/h. At 2:21, flight MU5735 lost communication with the ground and its ADS-B radar signal.

Probable Cause of Air Crash

According to the flight data, there is no evidence that the pilot had any interaction with ground control. At cruising altitude, the aircraft's engine power was likely lost, causing the pilot to lose control of the plane. 


The aviation expert guessing that it could be a very significant mechanical failure in which the plane inevitably undergoes a high-speed descent. This type of fatal crash happes due to mechanical/structural failure, human errors, subbotage and environmental (bad weather).

However, the exact reason of the crash would not be known until the black box is recovered and investigated.

The initial video footage shown the scenario is bleak in terms of casualties, and the potential of all onboard perishing cannot be ruled out. Furthermore, because to the terrain surrounding the accident site, search and rescue is difficult, and flames pose a significant risk to anyone who survives the crash.

NTSB Team Appointed

Mean while, The NTSB USA has appointed a senior air safety investigator as a U.S. accredited representative to the investigation of the March 21, 2022, crash of a China Eastern Airlines Boeing 737-800 near Wuzhou, China.

Representatives from Boeing, General Electric and the Federal Aviation Administration will serve as technical advisors.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) will lead the investigation. All questions about the investigation should be directed to the CAAC.

Aircraft have been grounded

The plane in question is a Boeing 737-800 that had been in service for just over six and a half years and belonged to China Eastern Airlines' Yunnan affiliate. In June of 2015, the plane was delivered.

According to the Global Times, China Eastern Airlines has decided to ground all of its Boeing 737-800 flights following the disaster.

The type of aircraft should have no problems after many years of operation and service. Whether maintenance and repairs met airworthiness criteria, whether the pilots made operating errors, or whether another human or exceptional circumstance occurred are all possible reasons of the disaster.

The plane belongs to the 737NG passenger aircraft series, which is not the same as the previously grounded 737 MAX 8.

The 737NG series of passenger aircraft, which includes the 737-600, 700, 800, and 900, is one of the world's most commonly used narrow-body passenger aircraft. Boeing's total output of the 737NG series was 7,088 as of February 2022.

According to statistics, the Chinese mainland has around 1,300 737NG aircraft in service, accounting for 37 percent of the total number of Chinese civil aviation fleets.

The crash has caused a further blow to the aviation industry, which has already sustained significant losses as a result of the epidemic, and the industry is pleading for greater government assistance to get through this difficult time.

Following the accident, China Eastern Airlines cancelled an undetermined number of flights departing from Kunming, Yunnan Province, on Monday afternoon, including flights to Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, and Xiamen, Fujian Province.

China Eastern Airlines' stock fell over 9% in early trade in the United States, while Boeing's stock fell 4%.
