Vertical speed was supposedly -29,000FPM according to FR24, not looking good.

This isn’t shaping up great… For now we should keep speculation to a minimum until he have real facts.

I got quickly notified about this as well. I live in Houston about an hr to an hr 30 west of where this took place. I pray everyone on board is ok.

N1217A: a 26-year-old B767-365(ER)(BDSF) was the plane that crashed.

From the time she was cruising at FL340 after descending from FL400, everything was fine until that sharp dive. I wonder what happened then.

Prayers to everyone involved and affected
