The flight MU 5735 took off from the metropolis of Kunming (southwest China) shortly after 1:00 pm local time, bound for Guangzhou (southern China).

According to the preliminary information, the aircraft fell nearly 8 000 meters in less than three minutes before disappearing from radar screens after 2:22 pm, local time. This air crash is believed to be the deadliest in China since 1994.

The plane was carrying 132 people, including 123 passengers and 9 crew members. The death toll and the cause of the crash are yet to be confirmed.
