Cirrus SR-20 down in North Sea (4-Jan-2016)

On Monday 4 January 2016 in the afternoon around 14:00 UTC, a Cirrus SR-20 (G-ZOGT), on a flight from Norwich to the German Island Sylt, disappeared from the radar some miles west of the Dutch Shore. Coast Guard started a SAR with aircraft and ships. Some time later debris of the plane was found. 1 POB missing. Weather at the time of the accident was not too good, visibility was poor, and a SIGMET had been issued to warn for severe icing.
Search for the unfortunate pilot continues on Tuesday.

Some news background (in Dutch, sorry!)
