Everyone was horrified to learn that a China Eastern flight crashed into a mountainside and killed all 132 people on board.

But something even more horrifying came up: the possibility that the flight was crashed deliberately by someone in the plane.

Someone Reportedly Input Orders To Deliberately Crash Plane

The China Eastern Flight MU5375 was flying from Kunming to Guangzhou on 21 March, when it crashed 29,000 feet into a mountainside. This crash killed all 132 people on board.

Black box flight data recorders found from the crash site were sent to the United States for analysis.

According to Wall Street Journal, people familiar with the investigations revealed that the data showed that someone input orders to send the plane crashing down. It is unclear who input the orders.

US officials cited how Chinese investigators have not found any problems with the aircraft or flight controls that could have caused the crash as evidence of their claim.

Additionally, reports from Boeing revealed that investigators found no evidence of “anything abnormal”.

 

China’s Civil Aviation Administration (CAAC) stated that the staff met all safety requirements before takeoff and the plane did not carry any dangerous goods. The plane also did not seem to have run into bad weather.

Authorities have also revealed that the pilots from the Boeing 737-800 did not respond to repeated calls from air traffic controllers and nearby planes during the crash.

However, it should be noted that a full investigation can take two or more years to conclude.

When asked by AFP, both the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and Boeing declined to comment on the investigation.

Deliberate Crashes Very Rare

On 11 April, the CAAC stated that rumours on the Internet about a deliberate crash had “gravely misled the public” and “interfered with the accident investigation work”.

Of course, nobody should jump to conclusions, especially since deliberate crashes are a very rare occurrence. The last deliberate crash happened in March 2015, when a Germanwings co-pilot deliberately flew a plane into a French mountainside. It killed all 150 people on board.

It was then found that the pilot was suffering from a “psychotic depressive episode” that was hidden from his employer. This then prompted better mental health guidelines and stronger peer support groups for pilots.

As of now, the investigation has not found any safety issues that would require urgent actions for other Boeing planes. The shares of Boeing have closed up 6.5% since the crash.
