Flight 587. I believe it was exactly that, as well.

Me, too. It happened so soon after routine air service resumed following 9/11 that when it happened, I knew it wouldn’t be connected to terrorism because that would have decimated the airline industry more than it had been, and made Americans even more paranoid and fearful. I think it was a cover-up, but a necessary one.

587 was a vertical stab connection point failure caused by excessive rudder input control. A well know problem with Airbuses of that vintage and resulted in extensive rework and pilot training.

Sorry that one was a clean equipment failure problem.
