China: Boeing 737 crashes near Wuzhou

A Boeing 737 with more than 133 people on board has crashed in mountains in China, with smoke seen from the scene.

Chinese state television said the plane flying from Kunming to Guangzhou had an “accident” over Guangxi.

The China Eastern Airlines flight was carrying 133 passengers at the time of the incident.

It is not known how many victims there are, but rescue is said to be on its way to the mountainous region.

The Guangxi Emergency Management Department said in a statement: “A China Eastern Airlines Boeing 737 passenger plane carrying 133 people crashed in Teng County, Wuzhou, Guangxi, causing a mountain fire.

“Currently, rescue teams have gathered and are closing in and the casualties are unknown.”

A video shared online showed white smoke billowing between trees.

Other footage showed the area ablaze.

Images shared on Twitter reportedly showed large sections of the plane’s fuselage, which were discovered by locals in the area.

The Aviation Safety Network tweeted: “We are following multiple unconfirmed reports of a possible accident involving a China Eastern Airlines flight #MU5735 a Boeing 737-89P (B-1791) en route from Kunming to Guanghzou, China.”

Flight data, allegedly sourced from the flight logs, showed the plane falling thousands of feet to the ground in just minutes, giving the crew little time to respond to the problem.

MU5735 flew from Kunming to Guangzhou and took off at 13:11 local time, according to FlightRadar24 data.

Flight tracking ended at 14:22 (0622 GMT) at an altitude of 3225 feet at a speed of 376 knots. It should have landed an hour later.
