Li Jian, Vice Director of Civil Aviation Administration, China, said, "We have made a preliminary investigation that the plane was struck by tree branch before it crashed. And we have set up 6 investigation groups to deal with the weather conditions, the planes capabilities, and air traffic control when the air crash occurred. But it may take a relatively long time before the results will be known. We will closely follow the investigation and make it public.
