On the morning of April 19, 2018, a Cirrus SR22 carrying two occupants departs from Lancaster Airport in Pennsylvania. The pilot and his passenger are bound for a conference in Indiana. What lies between the travelers and their destination, however, is a large swath of hazardous icing conditions, IMC, and mountain obscuration.
Join the AOPA Air Safety Institute as we follow the Cirrus along its route in this accident recreation, which includes a look at a similar tragedy involving a Beechcraft Bonanza that occurred only three days prior to the Cirrus accident.
