Pax on board:
During the takeoff roll at Palana Airport, the aircraft encountered difficulties to gain speed. The crew decided to abort but the aircraft was unable to stop within the remaining distance. It overran and rolled for about 400 metres before coming to rest against a snow bank. All nine occupants were injured, three of them seriously.
The aircraft was unable to gain sufficient speed after the crew failed to follow the pre-takeoff checklist and forgot to release the parking brake.
