Sad loss...R.I.P to all those onboard.....From the news report it seems like this aircraft was on maintenance for the previous few days and looking at the video it seems that they went assymetric resulting in the sudden corkscrew downwards!

It was on its final flight to the boneyard.

Thoughts with families and friends. R.I.P.
Cheers, Bob
