As the search for the dispersed wreckage of a China Eastern plane carrying 132 people that crashed a day earlier in a forested mountainous location in China's worst air accident in a decade resumed Tuesday, no survivors were found."Wreckage of the plane was found at the scene, but up until now, none of those aboard the plane with whom contact was lost have been found," state broadcaster CCTV said Tuesday morning, more than 18 hours after the crash.The Boeing 737-800 crashed near the city of Wuzhou in the Guangxi region while flying from Kunming in the southwestern province of Yunnan to the industrial center of Guangzhou along the east coast. It ignited a fire big enough to be seen on NASA satellite images.According to data from flight-tracking website, China Eastern Flight 5735 was cruising 455 knots (523 mph, 842 kph) at roughly 29,000 feet when it commenced a steep and quick descent around 2:20 p.m. local time. The plane plummeted to 7,400 feet in height before momentarily regaining around 1,200 feet, then fell again. After 96 seconds of falling, the plane ceased transmitting data.The plane was carrying 123 passengers and nine crew members, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said. It was about an hour into the flight, and nearing the point at which it would begin descending into Guangzhou, when it pitched downward.
