Re: Atlas Air 3591 Down in Trinity Bay, Texas

The only thing is, the aircraft had not entered the cell at the moment of the crash yet. Listening to the ATC, I stand corrected that it could have been to avoid the cell...but there was no weather at the location of impact at time of impact

More likely the turn was to avoid weather, which is what they wanted from ATC. GF Doubtful. That turn is sudden and intentional... not ATC instructe...
