Boeing B737 Loss Of Control After Rudder Malfunction

All 132 occupants were killed when the airplane struck terrain near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S. The investigation report said that, following an encounter with wake turbulence, the airplane’s rudder moved to the limit of its travel, in a direction opposite to that commanded by the flight crew. The report said that the rudder-control anomaly most likely was caused by a malfunction of the rudder’s main power control unit.
