Chinese state television says the plane, flying from Kunming to Guangzhou, had an “accident” over Guangxi.

The China Eastern Airlines flight had 133 passengers on board at the time of the incident.

It is unknown how many casualties there are but rescue is said to have been sent to the mountainous region.

Firefighters who first reached the scene had already extinguished the blaze in the hills caused by the plane crash, CCTV reported. The Guangxi Emergency Management Department said in a statement:

A Boeing 737 passenger plane carrying 133 people from China Eastern Airlines crashed in Teng County, Wuzhou, Guangxi, and caused a mountain fire.

At present, rescue teams have assembled and approached, and the casualties are unknown.

A video shared online showed white smoke billowing from between trees.

Images shared on Twitter claimed to be of large pieces of the plane’s fuselage discovered in the area by locals.

The Aviation Safety Network tweeted:

We are following multiple unconfirmed reports about a possible accident involving China Eastern Airlines flight #MU5735 a Boeing 737-89P (B-1791) en route from Kunming to Guanghzou, China.

Flight data claimed to be from the flight shows the plane dropped from 24 000 to the ground in just minutes, giving the crew little time to react to whatever the issue was.

The country’s last major plane accident was in August 2010, when a flight from Harbin crashed in north-east Yichun during foggy weather, killing 42 people.
