Today's Wall Street Journal contains a note that a United 737 experienced severe rudder deflection during final approach to O'Hare last week. The NTSB is investigating. Anyone know anything about it?

The NTSB haven't publish anything on their website yet. That doesn't mean nothing happened. Everyone's gonna jump to the rudder hardover conclusion. That's not nessecarily true, although i'm sure some news coorperations aren't gonna see that.
