Chinese airliner crashes with 132 aboard in country's south

BY The Canadian Press, Mar 21, 2022 5:10 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

China Eastern Airlines has grounded its fleet of Boeing 737-800 jets after China's worst air disaster in nearly a decade.

A flight with 132 people aboard plunged into a forested area in southern China, causing a fire big enough to be seen on NASA satellite images.

Data from flight-tracking website FlightRadar24-dot-com shows the plane went into a deep dive from its cruising altitude of about 30-thousand feet and crashed about 90-seconds later.
