Summary
231 Max talks about the crash of a Pilatus PC-12 that occurred on takeoff in ½ mile visibility in snow in SD. The aircraft, which has 10 seats, was carrying 12 people on a hunting trip. It was overweight and operating outside its C.G. limits. The pilot spent three hours removing snow and ice, but couldn’t reach the tail. A simulation showed the plane could have flown except for one additional mistake.
