On take off roll at dusk during heavy snow falls, aircraft veered off runway to the left and collided with a snow mound (1,2 meter high). Nose gear was sheared off while both main gears collapsed. All occupants escaped uninjured but aircraft was damaged beyond repair. It was used for the Far East Command.
It appears that runway was not correctly cleaned from snow.
