Wed Jun 19, 2013 8:34 pm

Does anyone know why TKY Flight 8 on 06/16/2013 was diverted to KBOS (or may be JFK)?

It returned to KBOS

Looking at the flight history it dropped speed from 550kts to 400kts, but only dropped from fl350 to fl320. An engine problem perhaps. It wouldn't have lost speed if it was medical and it wouldn't have remained so high if it was a pressurisation issue.

Can someone correct the title? Either THY or TK.

Sorry, major air show going on, a new airliner just had its second flight but I am more interested in spelling mistakes

Looking at that flightaware link, wouldn't YHZ or BGR have been closer, especially if it was a medical?
