No real flight data here, movements are all eye-balled from a Chinese animation.

Chinese authorities have been quite secretive about air crash investigations, and reports of accidents and incidents have been difficult to find even from official sources. I hope by uploading a translation of what is very likely the real CVR recording we could better understand & learn from these rarely-reported accidents.
