Speaking to CNBC, Mr. Dickson said that under the principles of investigation, the FAA must not believe in any speculation about the cause of the incident. He affirmed that the 737 NG planes, including the 737-800 series, are among the safest aircraft ever produced for commercial flight. According to him, based on the available data, the aforementioned Boeing 737-800 aircraft is fully capable of making the flight, so it is necessary to find the data to understand the cause of the catastrophic accident on .

Earlier, on March 23, US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said that Chinese officials had invited the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to participate in the investigation into the cause of the plane crash. However, later, the NTSB said it had not yet decided whether to send investigators to China because of difficulties in obtaining visas and concerns about Beijing’s strict quarantine requirements. The NTSB also said it would assist the Civil Aviation Administration of China in conducting an investigation with technical consultants from the FAA, Boeing and engine maker CFM.

The tragic accident occurred on March 21 when Boeing 737 aircraft number 5735 of China Eastern Airlines, departed from Kunming city (the capital of Yunnan province) to Guangzhou city (the capital of the province) Guangdong), lost contact while flying over Wuzhou city in Guangxi province. The plane was later determined to have crashed in the mountains in Guangxi. At the time of the accident, there were 132 people on board, including 123 passengers and 9 crew members.

Chinese officials have so far said no survivors have been found. The search scope has now been expanded almost 5 times.
