The RCMP was searching for the aircraft.
The airplane was located east of Makkovik in Labrador.
The pilot(47), belgium national, survived with unspecified but apparent serious injuries. The passenger (72), Uk national, died.

The pilot said to press:
'We were on our way to Greenland to make the crossing to England. I was working on my laptop. The weather was not exceptionally bad.
'Suddenly there was a blow, from nowhere,".
'When I recovered, I saw Alan was not moving, but still breathing,' he said. 'I immediately put and emergency blanket over him to keep him warm.'
'The plane was on the falnk of a steep hill,' he explained. 'I first tried to open the door. That was impossible. The snow was too thick.'
'I started to pry at the emergency door but realised that was not a good idea. It was warm inside and outside it was snowing and freezing.'
