Accident at Fort McMurray, Alberta


1996-12-09: The aircraft with two crew and twelve passengers on board, was inbound to Fort Chipewyan IFR from Fort McMurray. After a normal flight the aircraft was landed, at which point the crew reported difficulties in controlling the aircraft. They were able to bring it to rest near the edge of the runway where they discovered that the right wing had separated from the fuselage. The engine and propellers had struck the pavement moments after touch down which caused the control difficulties. Initial investigation reveals a possible right rear spar failure. Update to follow.
