    Default A Positive Outcome

    Great to see a positive outcome on this one. Sounds like they were well-prepared. ADN says it's a 172 and AkDispatch says 182, so a discrepancy there....

    Overall, not a bad job of airplane handling. Still, I think he's right: carb ice. And THAT could have been avoided, I suspect.
