The Super Trader departed Ankara for a flight to Bahrain. At 08:14 the aircraft passed Gemerek at FL115 and Elazig at 08:59 (at FL135). Last position report received was when over Mus at 09:26. The aircraft had crashed and was found after six days on Suphan Mountain.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The aircraft, flying on instruments, drifted north of its normal track because of strong winds and crashed into the mountain.
Contributing factors' 1) The winds were stronger than forecast; 2) An accurate bearing could not be obtained at Mus, and Van had not been checked; 3) Sub-normal temperatures would result in a high indicated altimeter reading; 4) Calculations on the flight and contacts with beacons were not coordinated and controlled."
