Pax on board:
On final approach to Pauingassi, the twin engine aircraft was too low and struck the ground short of the airstrip. It came to rest in snow and was damaged beyond repair. Both occupants escaped uninjured.
It is believed that the pilot misjudged the distance with the landing area and may have suffered a optical illusion caused by the reflection of the sun on the snow.
