Narrative:
The aircraft took off from EPKN and gradually climbed to FL120. It was cruising at FL120 for about ten minutes when it started to lose altitude quickly, gaining on speed according to FR24 and Flightaware data with VS around 6000ft per minute and speed of 200kts at one point. The wreckage shows elevator missing and partially deployed parachute. Missing elevator supports assumption that the aircraft encountered overspeed during its descent. The reason for descent remains unnown but it could be VFR into IMC, icing or engine problems, which were, according to published sources, reported by the pilot who contacted LKOL radio about intentions to land there due to engine problems.
