Dodging a bullet
MU5735 is a flight all too familiar to my wife, as she takes it regularly to get to Guangzhou's wholesale clothes where she buys stock for her Kunming fashion store. So it was a real shock to hear that this flight crashed last week, seemingly without explanation.
The graph (above) shows just how suddenly and catastrophically the plane went from normal cruising altitude to a nose-dive into the mountains of GuangXi. The experts are surmising that either the tail just fell off or the pilot went rogue. Either way it's a mystery for now.
