The FAA reported that a trim issue had occurred before the incident. Flight tracking data shows the aircraft climbing to approximately 24,000 feet before the upset occurred, with vertical speed peaking at almost 6,000 fpm before dropping to nearly -2,000 fpm some 15 seconds later. The jet subsequently diverted to Bradley International Airport in Connecticut and landed at 4 p.m. The NTSB and other authorities are investigating the incident, and Bombardier has pledged to fully cooperate. The company issued a statement expressing its condolences and support for all those affected by the accident. See Flight Tracking: HERE
