Narrative:Nextjet flight 2N773, a Saab 340B was on a scheduled flight from Hemavan Tärnaby to Vilhelmina in Sweden. The take off was performed in darkness and winter conditions. In connection with the take off a snowshower came in over the field which meant that visibility deteriorated and the wind speed increased.

During take off the aircraft gradually approached the left edge of the runway. After about 800 meters the aircraft ran out of the left edge of the runway with the left main wheel and the nose wheel, continued parallel to the runway for about 350 meters and then came back up onto the runway again. Shortly thereafter, the aircraft veered once more to the left, left the runway completely and stopped a few metres from the runway edge parallel to the direction of take off.
All persons on board were uninjured and left the aircraft through the main entrance and its staircase.
The incident was probably caused by a perceptual illusion for the pilots on account of large flakes of blowing snow, which led to the aircraft’s drift not being noticed in time. The illuminated landing lights have served to reinforce the illusion.
