China Eastern Jet flight data indicates intentional dive

Flight data from a black box recovered from a China Eastern jet that crashed earlier this year indicates that someone in the cockpit intentionally crashed the jet, the the wall street journal reported Tuesday, citing people familiar with U.S. officials’ preliminary assessment.

The company and the National Transportation Safety Board did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

In March, a Boeing 737-800 en route from Kunming to Guangzhou crashed into the mountains of Guangxi, killing 123 passengers and nine crew in the deadliest air disaster in mainland China in 28 years.

Boeing shares rose 5.1% in afternoon trade.
