Narrative:
The aircraft, with four persons on board, was on an IFR flight from Montreal to Kuujjuaq, with stopovers at Rouyn and La Grande (LG-2). The pilot made an LOC approach on runway 13 at LG-2 (La Grande) but was unsuccessful. He continued his route to LG-3 (Moose Lake, Manitoba).

Shortly thereafter, the pilot squawked MAYDAY because of low fuel. He had not refuelled the aircraft at the stopover in Rouyn. The aircraft crashed 4 miles north of LG-3 (Moose Lake, Manitoba, IATA Code: YAD). Minor injuries to one person.

Weather conditions at LG-2 during the approach were: ceiling 300 feet with visibility mile in fog. Weather conditions at LG-3 at 1400 UTC were: ceiling 300 feet with visibility 1 miles in rain. The Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
