Report on aircraft accident on Tisleifjorden lake in Gol municipality, Viken county, Norway 24 April 2020 involving Cessna 172S, LN-KAB
On 24 April 2020, LN-KAB landed on the icebound lake. During rollout, the aircraft entered an area where there was a layer of melted water between two layers of ice. The aircraft abruptly stopped as the nose wheel cut through the upper ice layer. The commander who was alone on board was not injured, but the aircraft suffered significant structural damage. The commander is responsible for ensuring safe landing conditions. The NSIA is of the opinion that the commander's preparations before the flight were not sufficient to establish that it was advisable to land on the frozen lake.
