(New York/Beijing = Yonhap News) Correspondent Ko Il-hwan Han Jong-gu = The cause of the crash of the China Eastern Airlines plane that crashed in March is highly likely to be the intention of the pilot.

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported on the 17th (local time) that the US authorities had made such a preliminary analysis on the cause of the crash of the Eastern Airlines MU5735, citing a source.

Earlier, the U.S. dispatched an aviation accident investigation team consisting of seven experts from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to China.

The Eastern Airlines plane that crashed was a Boeing 737-800 that crashed on the way from Kunming to Guangzhou on March 21, with 132 passengers and crew on board.

When a video of the plane crashing vertically at the time of the accident was released, speculation arose that the accident was intentional by the pilot.

In particular, the fact that the plane crashed at a speed of 1,000 km/h, similar to the speed of sound, was also used as the basis for this assumption.

Chinese authorities also cracked down on the Internet, saying that the intentional crash was false.

However, regarding the results of the black box analysis by US experts, the source said, “The plane just moved as ordered by someone sitting in the cockpit.”

However, in addition to the possibility that the pilot deliberately crashed the plane, authorities have not ruled out the possibility that someone broke into the cockpit and caused the crash.

China neither affirmed nor denied the WSJ’s report, arguing that it did not provide information to the media regarding the accident investigation.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China said on the 18th, “The Civil Aviation Administration of China and the U.S. Federal Traffic Safety Commission accident investigation participants did not disclose information related to the investigation to any media. will,” he said.

The Civil Aviation Administration explained that it is currently working on identifying, classifying and inspecting the wreckage of the crashed aircraft, and analyzing flight data.

“We are maintaining close communication with each party participating in the investigation and conducting the investigation in a scientific and orderly manner,” he added. .

Chinese authorities announced the results of a preliminary investigation into the crash last month, but kept silent about the cause of the accident, saying, “The black box is seriously damaged and repair work is in progress.”

However, the Chinese authorities did not find any mechanical problems or communication errors in the crashed Eastern Airlines passenger plane.

It was reported that Chinese authorities did not provide all information related to the accident to US experts who participated in the investigation.

Eastern Airlines responded to the results of the preliminary investigation by US experts, which weighed on the possibility of the pilot’s intentional crash, saying, “Unofficial speculation may have a negative impact on the investigation of the cause of the accident.”
