The cause of the accident may have been the pilot’s intentional action
“The plane did what someone in the cockpit said,” someone familiar with the initial assessment of U.S. officials, who had no full evidence, was quoted in the press. He recalls that while the Boeing 737-800 was flying at high altitude it suddenly started to descend almost vertically and fell down.
“The Chinese Civil Aviation Administration (CAAC), staff and air traffic controllers did not signal anything unusual before the plane landed,” the WSJ said.
According to a newspaper informant, the hack by someone in the cockpit may have been deliberately catastrophic, but China Eastern considers it impossible. Authorities in Beijing have not yet reported any mechanical or aircraft control problems. The crashed Boeing model is one of the best safety records in commercial aviation.
“Neither Boeing nor aviation regulators produce accident service notices or safety instructions. Such messages may be used if officials feel the need to alert airlines and pilots about problems the crew faces in the event of an accident, or a list of necessary corrections to the aircraft,” the magazine explains.

There were 132 people on the Boeing plane
Referring to the statement issued by China Eastern, WSJ writes that there were no problems with the aircraft. The health and financial condition of the pilots and their families was also good.
“China has the best aviation safety record in recent years. It was the last crash with fatalities many years before the crash. (…) China Eastern stated in its report that it has been flying safely for 18 years” – the daily noted.
The China Eastern Airlines Boeing 737-800 was flying from Kunming to Guangzhou when it crashed near the city of Wujo in Guangxi province.. The plane was carrying 123 passengers and nine crew. They all died.
