Loss of Rudder in Flight
14 Dec 2015
On 6 March 2005, the crew of an Airbus A310 heard a loud bang and felt some vibration. The aircraft entered a dutch roll and the captain disconnected the autopilot to manually fly the aircraft. During the descent, the dutch roll stopped but during the landing flare, rudder control inputs were not effective. After shutdown it was discovered that the rudder was missing.
