Zheng Xi, head of the fire brigade of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, said more than 15,000 rescuers were dispatched to the scene to search for information about the crashed plane with number MU5735, out of a total area 370,000 m2. To date, more than 36,000 aircraft debris has been found.
Also according to Zheng Xi, specialized equipment has been mobilized to the scene to conduct deep excavation work in the hope of discovering more aircraft parts and personal belongings and tools of the missing passengers. .
On March 27, search teams found a second black box. The device stores vital data such as flight path, speed, altitude and engine power, which can reveal the cause of the crash.
Chinese authorities are actively investigating the cause of the plane crash. Besides deciphering data from the black box, investigators also analyzed the collected parts and discussed with witnesses at the scene.
Zhu Tao, an official with the Civil Aviation Administration of China, said: “Large-scale air accident investigations that rely solely on data provided by black boxes often do not fully explain what happened.”
“While examining the data from the black boxes, we are doing our best to collect as much plane debris as possible, as well as eyewitness accounts of the crash.” Mr. Zhu Tao said.
Flight MU5735, belonging to China Eastern Airlines, was carrying 132 passengers when it crashed on March 21 en route from Kunming to Guangzhou.
The cause of the China Eastern plane crash is still unknown. The first black box, the cockpit voice recorder, was found and sent to Beijing for inspection.
Many theories have been raised about the cause of the catastrophic incident, but so far the investigation is still ongoing and the authorities have not reached an official conclusion.
