Yes. It's been reported as a Bombardier Challenger 600 (TC-TRB) with 8 passengers and 3 crew. All 11 believed to be dead.

I'm hearing that the passengers was a Turkish millionaire's daughter and her friends celebrating some pre-wedding party in Dubai. RIP

How to start a diplomatic incident....Argentinian news portal Infobae.com reported that a "Canadian Bomber" had crashed in Iran. It is easy in Spanish to mistake the word Bombardier (maker of the plane) for the word "bombardero" (bomber). But still... crappy journalism.

Why you didn't add Private in the title? Eye catching subject?

Well in French (and French Canadian) it's worse as the word is exactly the same !

This is terrible, the picture of the 8 women on the trip is haunting. My prayers to the loved ones.

I am curious about this quote from the BBC article. "Data from the FlightRadar24 website shows that about 80 minutes after taking off the jet rapidly gained altitude and then dropped more than 3,050m (10,000ft) before disappearing off the radar." Does anyone have access to the data to confirm? Wonder what kind of causes that could point to?

It appears inconsistant air speed indicators mislead the captain and she tried to slow down the aircraft by increasing the altitude but the aircraft was already slow. the aircraft entered a high altitude stall and they could not recover :(

All 3 of them? Are there no unreliable airspeed recall items and/or a checklist for this airplane type? Somehow I doubt that. But then again: Turkey is involved, where all pilots are heroes who are well known for never making a mistake.

Some more details here:
https://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20180311-0
This time (compared to AF447) the copilot tried the right thing and started doing the checklist:
The copilot tried to begin reading of the 'EFIS COMP MON' abnormal procedure for three times but due to pilot interruption, she could not complete it.


This reminds me of colgan air:
While the stick pusher acted to pitch down the aircraft to prevent a stall condition, the captain was mistakenly assumed an overspeed situation due to the previous erroneous overspeed warning and pulled on the control column.


Both the copilot and the airplane tried to lead the captain to do the right thing, both tragically failed.
