 Chinese airliner intentionally sent into a nosedive

A plane crash that claimed the lives of 132 passengers and crew members occurred in March. A Boeing 737-800 operated by China Eastern Airlines was flying between the southern Chinese cities of Kunming and Guangzhou. Data from one of the “black box” flight recorders found at the crash site indicates that the plane was deliberately sent into a dive as a result of a command given by “someone in the cockpit”.

Investigators so far, no mechanical or technical problems have been found in the aircraft that could have led to the crash.
China Eastern Airlines previously said the three pilots on board were all licensed and healthy. The airline's internal investigation also found no evidence that any of the pilots were in financial trouble.

The Chinese Embassy in Washington, the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and aircraft manufacturer Boeing declined to comment. American media reports on the preliminary results of the investigation, referring to the recommendations of the UN International Civil Aviation Organization.
