Apparantely, a City Line Avro RJ85 did an emergency landing at GRZ Saturday Evening due to partial loss of elevator and rudder control. Nobody hurt. The flight was operated for LH and arriving from FRA.

To sum it up for everybody...
"Yesterday at around 6PM local time a Lufthansa AVRO was experiencing a loss of control shortly before landing at GRZ / LOWG / LOXG), Austria">GRZ (my home airport). They were circling the area for about 30-40 minutes and then landed by steering via the 4 engines. The plane landed safely and nobody was hurt."
This was the information that Lufthansa published yesterday.
Today they claim that: "Control was only lost on the F/O's side. The Cpt.'s controls were fully working. They spent the 30-40 minutes in the air to check all the systems, the Cpt. then safely landed the plane as he had full control of all systems."
