Accidents and incidents
- On 19 February 1996 at 09:54 local time, a Private Wings Cessna Citation II (registered D-CASH) crashed near Freilassing, Germany, killing the two pilots and eight passengers on board. The aircraft was on an executive flight from Berlin Tempelhof Airport to Salzburg Airport and the pilots had already begun the final approach, when severe icing conditions were encountered, leading to a stall and subsequent crash of the aircraft into a forest 3 nmi (5.6 km) short of the runway. The accident investigation concluded that there was also a short circuit in the aircraft's electrical systems, which might have contributed to the crash.
