One year on, cause of China Eastern Airlines crash still a mystery

Friday, 22 Mar, 2023 0

Aviation experts are still investigating the China Eastern Airlines crash one year later.

The China Eastern Airlines jet crashed into a mountainside on March 21, 2022.

The cause is still unknown.

“Due to the complexity and rarity of this accident, the investigation is still being carried out,” aviation regulator the CAAC said.

“The investigation team will continue to carry out analysis.”

A month after the crash, the CAAC said no technical problems, crew failures or bad weather could be attributed to the crash.

No issues were reported to air traffic control before the crash.

Even with assistance from the US National Transportation Safety Board, it apparently still remains a mystery.

The two black box data and voice recorders have been analysed by the NTSB but no findings have been released.

The crash killed 132 people.
