According to the FAA, the pilot of the plane said ice was forming and that she was going to try to land at the airport.

The first question in my mind is, “Did she get a weather briefing?” If so, “Was the ice in the forecast?”

Even if you fly the holiest of missions, the weather will STILL get you if you do not respect it!
