Descripción:
Flight 1502, a Boeing 707 named "Flagship Oklahoma", departed New York International Airport for a pilot training flight. Last radio contact was at 11:57, 57 minutes after takeoff. In clear weather, some 23 minutes later the plane was seen in a left-wing low steep dive. The Boeing crashed in the ocean just off Montauk Point. At that moment the flight crew were probably carrying out either an engine shut down and airstart, a canyon approach (requiring 30deg of flaps, which was the probable flap setting when the plane struck the sea), or en route 2 engine climb manoeuvres.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "A loss of control for an undetermined reason."
