Passenger Jet with 132 Aboard Crashes in China’s Guangxi Province

HeadlineMar 21, 2022

In China, a passenger jet with 132 people aboard crashed near the southern city of Wuzhou in Guangxi province. State media reports rescue crews were dispatched after the plane crashed in a remote mountainous region, producing a massive fireball. Harrowing footage posted to social media appears to show the jet plummeting vertically toward the ground just moments before impact. A flight-tracking website identified the plane as a Boeing 737-800. It’s the model that preceded the troubled 737 MAX, and has an excellent safety record.
