China launches airline inspection, search for casualties continues by | World news

As the search for China’s plane crash victims continues, China’s Civil Aviation Administration (CAAC) on Tuesday night launched a sector-wide two-week inspection for possible safety lapses, Reuters reported. The inspection will include inspections at all regional air traffic control bureaus and will also include the airlines and aviation training institutions to ensure the absolute safety of aviation operations and the lives of people.

The Chinese aviation authorities have said that the investigation is difficult because the plane was heavily damaged. Emergency officials and those from the airline and the Civil Aviation Administration of China shake the crash site, but the pun was either scattered or burned.

The investigation will try to find out why the plane made such an abrupt and heavy dive of 9,075 feet. Boeing has also offered full assistance in the probe.

The country’s aviation regulator said contact with the plane was lost above the city of Wuzhou.
