Pax on board:
On take off roll at dusk during heavy snow falls, the aircraft veered off runway to the left and collided with a snow mound (1,2 meter high). The nose gear was torn off while both main gears collapsed. All occupants escaped uninjured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. It was used for the Far East Command.
It appears that runway was not properly cleaned from snow prior to takeoff.
