Boeing 737-800, TC-JGR


TC-JGR was cleared to depart from Runway 05 at London Stansted Airport, Essex, on a ‘Dover Five Sierra’ Standard Instrument Departure for Istanbul Ataturk Airport, Turkey. Soon after takeoff the aircraft was observed in a “steep” nose-down attitude. It then flew level, at 500 ft aal (900 ft amsl), for approximately 6 nm before being instructed to climb immediately to 5,000 ft amsl. Having been given further climb clearances, the aircraft subsequently reached its cruising level and later landed at Istanbul Ataturk Airport without further incident.
