China Eastern Airlines passenger plane carrying 132 people has crashed in southwest China. So far, no casualty has been reported from the incident

In the Guangxi region, a Boeing 737 plane crashed in the countryside near Wuzhou. According to CCTV, it "set the mountain on fire," and emergency workers were called to the location.

There was no news about the cause of the crash of the plane, which was identified by flight-tracking website Flightradar24 as a 6-year-old 737-800 aircraft.

China Eastern Flight MU5735 did not arrive at its scheduled destination of Guangzhou after taking off from Kunming city shortly after 1:00 pm (0500 GMT) on Monday.

Flight-tracking ended at 2:22 pm (0622 GMT) at 3225 feet with a speed of 376 knots. It was scheduled to land at 3:05 pm (0705 GMT).

“China’s civil aviation authority says 132 people, including the crew, were on board and It appears that the plane crash ignited a wildfire [near Quangxi], and you get a sense of how remote this location is,” she continued.

“Given how challenging this terrain is, you can imagine how difficult it will be to send rescue teams there soon.”
