Search teams have found a black box from the China Eastern flight which plunged into mountains in southern China this week, state media report.

Chinese avionics authorities declared the finding at a press conference on Wednesday, following two days of searching.

Authorities are still yet to report the number of the dead, but it is feared none of the 132 people on board survived the high-altitude crash.

Specialists actually don't have the foggiest idea why the plane plunged out of the sky.

Mao Yanfeng, director of the civil aviation accident investigation department, told reporters there had been "no dangerous weather" on the plane's route at the time of the crash.

He added the plane's crew and air traffic control had maintained normal communication until the plane's sudden drop in altitude.

At the same press conference, China Eastern Airlines director Sun Shiying said the plane had been considered airworthy and had fulfilled required support guidelines, announced Xinhua.

The crash is likely China's most dangerous avionics incident in three decades and has prompted a national outpouring of grief.

President Xi Jinping has called for a full-scale investigation, and the government has dispatched hundreds of rescuers, soldiers, experts, and other laborers to the site in the remote hills of Guangxi province.

On Wednesday, the crushed families of the 123 passengers and nine teams on board the flight additionally showed up at the crash site, gathering in the small village closest to the scene.

They were accompanied by authorities conveying umbrellas as they entered Lu village. One 57-year-old man, whose sister-in-law was on the flight, told the waiting media: "All I want is hope, the desire for endurance."

Hundreds of search laborers have been scouring the forested region of Wuzhou, looking for the plane's black box recorders in the midst of the destruction and singed garbage.

Authorities have said that they have not found any survivors until this point, and rescue crews still can't seem to track down any bodies

However, teams have recovered many personal items belonging to passengers and crew, including purses, wallets, and even identity cards.

Flight MU5735 had been in the air for over an hour on Monday and was approaching its Guangzhou destination when it unexpectedly dropped from its cruising height.

Air controllers had repeatedly called the aircraft during its descent but had received no response, authorities said on Tuesday.
