Feb. 4, Andrews, N.C. / Mooney M20C


At about 15:50 EST, a Mooney M20C crashed during a forced landing after losing power near Andrews. The pilot suffered minor injuries. The flight departed Richmond, Va., for Knoxville, Tenn., about 2 hours 45 minutes before the accident. The pilot said he saw that possible icing conditions existed as he neared his destination, so he canceled his IFR flight plan to make a visual landing. He was about 70 miles south of his destination when the engine suddenly stopped.
