Lufthansa City-Line flight 5386 departed Frankfurt for a flight to Graz. With the co-pilot at the controls (PF), the airplane suffered a total failure of primary controls (ailerons and elevators). The captain took over control and decoupled the controls. It appeared that the ailerons and elevator were now working again on his side. After holding near Graz for a while, the captain carried out an emergency landing.
Nobody was injured.
