Circumstances:
The pilot, sole occupant, was injured when the single engine aircraft crashed shortly after takeoff from Helsinki-Vantaa airport, bound for Örebro-Bofors airport in Sweden, with cargo on board. Weather conditions were good at the time of the accident with CAVOK and clouds at 5,000 feet. The aircraft crashed shortly after takeoff from runway 22L and was registered to Nordflyg (NTD Air Cargo). It appears that the pilot did not prepare his flight correctly and did not remove the snow on aircraft prior to depature.
