Chinese Court Jailed the Pilot Over Deadly Henan Airlines Plane Crash

A Chinese court has sentenced the pilot of the Henan Airlines flight which crashed in Yichun, Heilongjiang province of China in 2010, killing 44 people.

It is believed that the ill-fated Embraer E-190 plane crashed in heavy fog after the main pilot, Qi Quanjun, decided to land without being able to see the runway properly. There were 91 passengers aboard the plane, around half of which were government officials. Quanjun survived the accident with serious facial injuries.

After more than 4 years, a local Chinese court, on December 19, has ordered to jail the pilot for 3 years on the grounds of ‘causing a major airline accident’ and not properly evacuating the passengers.
