Circumstances:
Left Liverpool-Speke in the day for a regional schedule flight. En route, the pilot encountered poor weather conditions with heavy snow falls and was unable to locate his real position. So he decided to reduce his altitude and attempted an emergency landing when the twin engine aircraft hit the ground and crashed upside down in a snowy field. All five occupants were injured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
