small plane accidents common... get attention when one crashes in an unusual location or an unusual situation. ... worked tower at So Lake Tahoe for a couple of summers... crash every 2 weeks.. usually Sunday PM departures with density altitude 9500..turb and downdrafts over last third of runway....

Probably icing. From all reports the aircraft was in excellent shape with updated avionics and mechanically sound. The pilot on board was professional and experienced. The air temps were right and aircraft was slowing for the approach. But we shall see in about a year what the experts say.

From my understanding, the entire flight from Columbus was in icing conditions

I wonder if sometimes those conditions in icing develop so fast the pilot doesn't have time to react.

RIP to both on board. The Aircraft was I noticed a 1974 model, and I wonder just how much had happened to it over the past almost 50 years or so?

You would have to check the aircraft logbooks to see the extensive list of maintenance items addressed at each of the past 50 annuals presumably done to that aircraft. Paul, I'm sure you're a nice guy, but perhaps you don't know that aircraft have extensive annual inspections in order to be legal to fly. The fact that it was a 1974 model likely had NOTHING to do with the accident, but of course, we don't really know yet.

And yes, in case anyone else is wondering...I felt the need to post my comment below after spending several thousand dollars on my annual inspection YESTERDAY (1979 C182). Ha!
