A little more information might be helpful.

 

Which weather program are you using?

 

Do you use Accu-Feel?

 

Do you use the registered or free version of FSUIPC?

 

What were the real life weather conditions at the time?

In FSX 'Clear skies' isn't truly 'clear', it still adds in occasional wind gusts and turbulence. The best solution is a third party weather app with a clear sky weather theme, which forces FSX to not bother adding it's own weather.

 

And yeah, even with the 'clear sky' setting in FSX, those little bursts of turbulence can be enough to put your plane into a fatal dive if you're unlucky or low enough.

Sorry for the long de- lay {work} I am using Active Sky 2012 I have it turn way down I just check My Accu-Feel and found that the global was up to about 10 I turn it down .I am using a registered FSUIPC  and weather was clear most of the time.To night I did even had time to pull the power back before it crash.We will see if changing the Accu-Feel helps.Thanks for all your help.

Something is amiss there. I have AS2012 and have never had issues like that. I have had issues with wake turbulence which can end a flight very quickly and with the older AS version I had an issue with one particular aircraft, The Lionheart Epic Dynasty where every now and then while at 30K feet the plane would be literally thrown 3-4000 feet straight up and then up to 10K feet straight down and would oscillate like that for a while.

I had problems with Accu-Feel's turbulence.  Accu-Feel enhances the effects created by FSX and any weather add on programs.  I think the enhancement of turbulence is way over done.
