Enroute Staverton to Strasbourg the pilot was having problems with icing at FL100. He elected to decend and divert to Antwerp, although Liége was nearest for him. Sadly it is thought that ice formed on his prop and he crash landed 5 miles inside Belgian airspace after activating the parachute survival system (CAPS). The pilot and owner of the Cirrus received minor injuries in the impact which also involved an altercation with a tree.
