N62711 c/n 27-7654165. Yep, this one really bought the farm this time!! It crashed at Isla Grande. The pilot blamed ATC. Made also a crash landing in Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA) on 15 February 1995 at 18:56. The flight encountered unforecasted icing as it approached its original destination. The pilot stated the airplane's windshield de-icing plate was not able to clear the ice from its surface. The entire windshield was ice covered. The pilot decided to fly to his alternate airport because it had better instrument approach facilities. During his second instrument approach, he was guided to a landing by FAA air traffic control personnel located next to the rwy. The airplane firmly contacted the rwy at touchdown. During the landing roll the left main gear collapsed and the airplane collided with taxiway signs and rwy edge lights. The on-scene investigation revealed about 1 1/2 inches of ice on the windshield. Shortly after the airplane came to a stop, the windshield de-icing plate area was clear. The unbooted areas of the airplane's wings had 2 to 2 1/2 inches of ice on them.
