Something to think about:

The Boeing 737 dissappeared from radar seven minutes after departure, no mayday call, no indication that anything was wrong. Impact is believed to be high speed, nose down. Oh, oh.....not a rudder reversal again I hope ?!

Boeing must be a bit worried too I suspect.

These are just some interesting thoughts to think about and this posting is of a highly speculative nature. Nothing has been concluded yet and probably won't be until at least a year or so.

Where did you get this info? The last I heard on April 7th via Reuters was that the plane became "engulfed in flames shortly after takeoff" and then crashed into a field. The source is Anatolian News Agency. Interestingly, the GM of THY said it was most likely a fault in the steering.

Why would a fault in the steering, or the rudder system, result in the plane becoming engulfed in flames. This doesn't make any sense. Either the GM is cruising for a monster insurance payout, or someone is confused about when exactly the plane erupted in flames. Its easy to see how rumors can get started. We shall see...

The only details available are that the Boeing 737 departed Adana at 00.36h for a flight to Jeddah to pick up Turkish pilgrims. Weather was poor when the plane crashed, nine minutes after takeoff. The wreckage was found to have been scattered over a 500sq feet area. Also, a 10m deep hole was found at the point of impact.
