Chinese Boeing plane was ‘intentionally’ death plunged into mountain, killing 132 says new report

Flight data recovered from the black boxes of the China Eastern Boeing 737-800 airliner crash on March 21 showed that the plane’s sudden vertical “death plunge” into a mountain was an intentional act carried out by someone in the cockpit, a new report revealed.

In an exclusive published Tuesday, The Wall Street Journal said people close to U.S. officials conducting a preliminary assessment of the accident determined from flight data that manual actions performed on the flight controls directed the plane into its sharp plunge into a mountain.

“The plane did what it was told to do by someone in the cockpit,” one of the sources told The Wall Street Journal. The preliminary assessment mirrors a Leeham News and Analysis trade publication report last month that said the flight data indicated the pilot deliberately inputted flight controls causing the crash.

The source noted that Chinese officials leading the investigation haven’t found any mechanical issues or flight control malfunctions that would support a different theory. If evidence of such issues were found, Boeing and airline safety regulatory agencies would typically issue industry-wide alerts, but that hasn’t happened in this case.

Officials involved in investigating the crash are now focusing on the actions taken by the pilot, though they’re also exploring the possibility that someone broke into the cockpit to intentionally cause the crash, the source said.
