Someone in cockpit intentionally crashed Chinese plane: WSJ report

Chinese investigation revealed that there was no problem with the aircraft or the cargo 

A news report citing preliminary findings by American officials notes that Black box data of a Chinese airliner that crashed on March 21 killing all 132 people on board indicates that someone in the cockpit intentionally crashed the plane.

China Eastern flight MU5735 went into a near vertical nosedive less than an hour before it was meant to arrive at Guangzhou, with flight tracking showing the plane plummeting to the ground at an almost 90-degree angle.

The Wall Street Journal cited unnamed officials as saying that the flight information recorded in the black box suggested inputs were made to cockpit controls that put the plane in a fatal plunge.

The Boeing 737-800 jet, data recorded by flight tracking service FlightRadar showed, dropped from 29,000 feet to the ground in less than two minutes.

A preliminary report by China’s aviation regulator released on April 20 found no problems with the aircraft or the cargo. The Chinese report did not establish a cause for the crash.

The WSJ cited its sources as saying that there is also a possibility that someone else on the plane could have broken into the cockpit and deliberately caused the crash.
