Mud-stained wallets and bank cards are among personal effects found on a mountainside where 132 lives were presumed lost when a China Eastern plane inexplicably fell from the sky and burst into a fireball. Video clips show small pieces of the plane and exposed earth where the plane crashed, but no survivors have been found. Family members gathered at the destination and departure airports, as investigators looked into why the Boeing 737-800 made a steep dive shortly before it would have begun its descent to land. The search for the black boxes holding the flight data and cockpit voice recorders will be difficult at the remote site accessible only by foot or motorcycle.
