NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.
After touching down on runway 32, which the pilot described as ice- and snow-covered, the airplane began drifting to the right. The pilot attempted to correct for the drift with left rudder pedal input; however, the airplane continued to move to the right, and the right main landing gear wheel entered the snow off the runway surface. The airplane impacted a snowbank, nosed over, and came to rest inverted, sustaining substantial damage to the left wing and fuselage. The wind recorded about 1 1/2 hours before the accident at an airport located about 13 nautical miles northwest of the accident airport was from 230 degrees at 15 knots. The pilot reported no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.
