Boeing plane carrying 133 people crashes in southern China.

A China Eastern Airlines plane with 133 people on board crashed in mountains in south China on Monday while on a flight from the city of Kunming to Guangzhou, state media reported.

The jet involved in the incident was a Boeing 737 aircraft and the number of casualties was not immediately known, CCTV said. Rescue was on its way, it said.

The incident happened in the southern province of Guangxi near the city of Wuzhou in Teng county, and sparked a mountainside fire.

There was no word on the cause of the crash of the plane, a 6-year-old 737-800 aircraft, according to Flightradar24.

The China Eastern flight from Kunming to Guangzhou departed at 1.11pm local time (5.11am GMT), FlightRadar24 data showed. The flight tracking ended at 2.22pm (6.22am GMT) an altitude of 3,225ft with a speed of 376 knots.

It had been due to land at 3.05pm (7.05am GMT).

The safety record of China’s airline industry has been among the best in the world over the past decade.

According to Aviation Safety Network, China’s last fatal jet incident was in 2010, when 44 of 96 people on board were killed when an Embraer E-190 regional jet flown by Henan Airlines crashed on approach to Yichun airport in low visibility. – Reuters, AP
