Beschrijving:
On January 4 two Y-8 transport planes (31242 and 31243) of the Chinese Air Force crashed on approach to Zheng Zou Air Base. One airplane struck a house, killing six people. The other airplane crashed in a field. All sixteen crew members of both Y-8's are reported dead. The exact breakdown (8 each) is assumed. Also, it has not been reported if 31242 or 31243 crashed into the house. To add to the confusion, official reports state that both aircraft crashed as a result of tailplane icing while other reports indicate that both planes collided.
