The THY F-27 took off from Ankara at 14:20GMT for a flight to Adana. En route the pilot reported passing Aksaray and estimated to arrive at Adana at 15:40GMT. At 15:28 the pilot reported at FL175 and requested a clearance to approach. At 15:40 the flight was cleared to 5000 feet and was asked to report crossing 8000f and 7000 feet. Nothing more was heard from the flight. It appeared the plane had crashed at 6800 feet amsl, some 47nm from the Adana radio range.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "According to reports received by the Incirlik tower, the aircraft should have been on the Adana radio range at 1540 hours and at flight level 175. In avoiding cumulus cloud, and associated turbulent conditions, the pilot was not able to keep track of his exact position or to maintain exact altitude."
