A SR-20 flying at 9000 feet over Norway on May 28/10 encountered heavy icing, pilot reported aircraft became impossible to controls, and lost 6000 feet. BRS chute was deployed, aircraft came down in a mountainous area with no injuries reported to the four on board.
A search was started after the aircraft failed to respond to ATC, when one of the passengers called Oslo Airport via his cell phone.
Question is, why was he in an area with severe icing? Often times I hear of how many have been saved by the BRS in a Cirrus, but I wonder if they should have even been in that situation in the first place.
