On October 12, 2003, at 1105 coordinated universal time, a Cirrus Design Corporation SR-22, N100BR, collided with trees and the ground in the mountains near Pomplona, Spain. A visual flight rules (VFR) plan was filed by the pilot. The pilot and three passengers were fatally injured, and the airplane was destroyed. The flight departed Ibiza Island on October 12, 2003 at 1004 coordinated universal time.
The airplane departed Ibiza Island and expected to make a 4-hour flight to Basle-Mulhouse in Switzerland. Radar contact was lost 25 miles off the east Spanish coast. The last radio contact made from Costa Brava was at 1055 coordinated universal time at 1,500 feet.

It is considered that the accident was caused by the aircraft not reaching sufficient height to fly over the mountains, the tops of which were hidden by the clouds that existed in the area. The pilot continued the visual flight although instrument meteorological conditions prevailed. The impact was direct against the side of the mountain.
