Chinese air crash

HENAN AIRLINES suffered the loss of an Embraer 190 last Tuesday (24 August) at Yichun City in the mountainous area of central China.  Reportedly 43 of the 96 people on board lost their lives.  China’s official Xinhua News Agency reported that the aircraft overshot the runway and "was engulfed in [a] blaze after it crashed as a heavy fog blanked blanketed the airport."   Henan, a Shenzhen Airlines regional subsidiary, was formerly known as Kunpeng Airlines (ATW Daily News, 12 May).  Earlier this year, it changed its name and transferred its operating base from Xi'an to Zhengzhou.  AERBT has a policy of not illustrating fatal incidents. www.kunpeng-air.com (Use Google Translate)
