China Northern Airlines Flight 6136 (CBF6136, CJ6136) was a flight from Beijing Capital International Airport to Dalian Zhoushuizi International Airport, a coastal city in Liaoning province of the People's Republic of China. On May 7, 2002, at the end of a week-long holiday, the plane crashed into the bay near Dalian, shortly after the pilot reported "fire on board," killing all 103 passengers and 9 crew members. It was the second air disaster involving PRC aircraft in less than a month, after the Air China Flight 129 disaster on April 15. The MD-82 jetliner took off at 2037 local time (1237 UTC) from Beijing. At 2120 local time (1320 UTC), as the plane neared Dalian, the captain reported "fire in cabin" to Dalian tower and requested an emergency landing. At 2124 local time (1324 UTC) the aircraft disappeared from the radar screen and lost contact with ATC. It was due to arrive Dalian at 2140 local time (1340 UTC). Eye witnesses on a nearby fishing boat reported that "a plane with fire and smoke crashed into the sea, broken in two parts." On 1505 local time (0705 UTC) May 14, the cockpit voice recorder was picked up by the searchers from the sea, 7 days after the disaster.show more
