By Jordi Bou

May 18, 2022 - US Ermittler glauben, dass irgendjemand im Cockpit absichtlich den China Eastern Flug im März zum Absturz gebracht hat. Es ist der tödlichste Flugunfall in China in 28 Jahren, wie Medien berichten.

Data from one of plane’s “black box” flight recorders, suggests inputs to controls pushed plane into fatal dive Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with preliminary assessment.

Investigators looking into the crash are examining whether it was due to intentional action on the flight deck, with no evidence found of a technical malfunction, according to Reuters, which cited two people briefed on the matter.

The crash of China Eastern Flight 5735 posed a fresh challenge for aviation authorities in the country, which has maintained a strong flight-safety record in recent years.

The jet was a Boeing 737-800, a model long viewed as a reliable workhorse in the industry.
