    5 January 2004; Austrian Airlines Fokker F70; OE-LFO; flight 111; near Munich, Germany: The aircraft was on a scheduled international flight from Vienna, Austria to Munich, Germany. During descent, which occurred during moderate icing conditions, ice buildup occurred in both engines, and ice-induced damage led to a significant loss of thrust from both engines. The aircraft landed in a snow-covered field about four km (2.5 miles) from the runway and was severely damaged during the landing. None of the five crew members and 28 passengers were killed.
