Circumstances:
The single engine aircraft left Akureyri Airport at 1400LT for an ETA in Keflavik in 1706LT. In unknown circumstances, it crashed approximately 25 km west of Akureyri in a mountainous terrain and came to rest upside down. As the aircraft failed to arrive, SAR operations were conducted and the wreckage was spotted at 2030LT. While the passenger was killed, the pilot Arn­grím­ur Jó­hanns­son (ex CEO of Air Atlanta) was injured. The aircraft seems to be written off.
