Straight down. It must have lost it's tail like AA 587. Or,UA 585 rudder problem. What horrific nightmare.

DOH.. of course something happened, but I don;t think the tail came off.. If so, I very seriously doubt that it would have been a recording event.. they would have disappeared from ADSB Receivers!
