A Sun Express Boeing 737-800, registration TC-SPB performing flight XQ-1360 from Diyarbakir (Turkey) to Dusseldorf (Germany) with 198 people on board, was on final approach to Dusseldorf's runway 23L when the crew initiated a go around at about 2000 feet MSL due to problems with the flaps. The crew also reported problems with their radio system. The aircraft climbed to 4000 feet, decided to divert to Cologne (Germany) further climbing to FL070 and landed safely but at a higher than normal speed (about 160 knots over ground) on Cologne's runway 32R about 30 minutes after the go-around.
