According to data, the Boeing 737 was cruising at 29,000ft before going down at vertical speeds reaching 30,000 ftpm+ before tracking ends at 3,225ft.

Video footage captures showed the aeroplane nose-diving to the ground during the final seconds before impact.

A massive crater was created at the crash site and there were no signs of any survivors. Chinese Civil Aviation Administration has launched an investigation into the crash.

The United States National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has appointed a senior air safety investigator as a U.S. accredited representative to the investigation and Boeing has said their technical experts are prepared to assist with the investigation.
