SAAB-Scania SF340B, G-LGNJ, 9 January 2006



During a descent in icing conditions the autopilot disengaged and the aircraft pitched nose down. Initially, the pilots could not move the control column fore and aft but they were able to re-engage the autopilot and complete the flight in safety. No mechanical fault could be found that would have affected the control system.
