Unfallbericht:
The Islander was being ferried to the United States. It departed Reykjavķk weighing 297 kgs in excess of the mtow. Shortly after takeoff the pilot radioed that she had dropped her portable GPS on the floor and could not locate it. She decided to divert to Keflavik International Airport. During descent the nr.2 engine failed. The pilot did not feather the prop nor did she try to restart the engine. The airplane descended until it crash-landed in rough terrain some 5 nm (9km) short of the airport. Investigation revealed that the mixture control for the nr.2 engine was pulled back. This may have occurred inadvertently by the pilot's sleeve when searching for the GPS device.
