New shocking information has been revealed about the China Eastern Airlines plane that crashed in March

The incident that killed 132 people was intentionally flown into the mountainside according to reports.

U.S. officials examined the plane’s black box, uncovering that people within the cockpit deliberately caused the Boeing 737 to veer out of control.

The plane was flying on-route at a normal altitude and speed before it nosedived into a mountain.

Initially experts speculated that the crash was caused by faults in the plane design, which is what caused two other fatal plane crashes in 2018 and 2019, but no officials have indicated any mechanical issues.

The pilot and co-pilot were allegedly in good health with no known motive for crashing the plane.

Chinese authorities say that no emergency code was sent from the plane, meaning it is unlikely that an intruder entered the cockpit.
