The North Star Air DC-3C Turbine aircraft, registration C-FKGL was operated by Private Air as Flight BF102 from Pickle Lake to Big Trout Lake Airport (CYTL) in Ontario. After the rotation at 83 KIAS, the flight crew noted an absence of climb performance as the aircraft did not accelerate or achieve a positive rate of climb. The crew subsequently carried out a forced landing and came to rest 1,3 km from the departure end of runway 27 on the frozen surface of Pickle Lake. There were no injuries to the 3 occupants.
The aircraft sustained damage to the engines, propellers, and cowlings. The lower longerons and adjacent structures in the engine nacelles were damaged due to impact with the landing gear axles. The drag-brace attachment points of both landing gears were broken away. The engines were examined at an overhaul facility and there was no indication of any pre-impact conditions that would have contributed to the occurrence. Both propeller governors were functionally tested and were found to be operating normally with no PY air leakage. The aircraft's engines were replaced on the lake and repairs were made to allow the aircraft to depart Pickle Lake on a ferry flight to Thunder Bay, ON (CYQT) for further repairs.
