Quote from Kulverstukas post:
"According to the Turkish media, the pilot in his last contact with the control demanded an urgent landing after the departure of the aircraft, and this request was registered. "

According to the press reports I have read, the crew reported technical problems and requested a descent. It was shortly thereafter that a loss of speed, rapid descent and loss from radar seems to have ocurred.
Reading the version posted by Kulver, it does not seem to read quite right. In as much that an urgent landing was requested after departure. They were in the cruise, an hour or more into the flight, when the accident took place. Perhaps this is due to linguistics.
