The Second Black Box of Crashed China Eastern Airlines Boeing 737-800 Found

On 21st March, a China Eastern Airlines Boeing 737-800 carrying 132 passengers crashed into a mountain in South China killing all 132 onboard.

The Boeing 737-800 was operating flight MU5735 from the city of Kunming to Guangzhou, China cruising at 29,000ft before going down at vertical speeds reaching more than 30,000 ftpm.

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

Two days since the crash the first black box containing the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) was found which was substantially damaged and has been sent to the manufacturer for download and decoding.

Yesterday the second black box containing the Flight Data Recorder (FDR) was recovered which was in good condition.

As recovery continues more than 33,000 items have been recovered in the crash site where a massive crater was created due to the heavy impact.

According to reports, a new key finding has been made after searching for and interviewing many witnesses although the details are yet to be revealed.
