Circumstances:
The crew was performing a delivery flight from Stauning (Denmark) to Klaipėda with an intermediate stop in Kattleberg, Sweden. Recently acquired by the company for agricultural purposes, the single engine aircraft left Kattleberg Airfield at 1312LT with an ETA in Klaipėda at 1720LT. En route, the crew informed ATC about the situation at 1516LT and four minutes later, the aircraft crashed in unknown circumstances into the Baltic Sea, 116 km off the Lithuanian coast. The crew of a Lithuanian Marine vessel located the wreckage three days later, at a deep of 124 meters and 116 km off shore. No trace of the crew was found.
