Accident: La Ronge Airport (CYVC), SK. 05-Mar-2006. Turbo Beaver (C-FOED) was parked when ski-equipped DeHavilland DHC-6-100 Twin Otter, registration C-FCCE, ran into it. The Twin Otter also operated by Transwest Air had been parked on the apron overnight. The crew had not broken the skis free from the snow-covered apron before starting engines. The pilot therefore used forward and reverse thrust to break the skis free, and the aircraft abruptly began moving forward. The crew was unable to stop the aircraft before it struck C-FOED and a support vehicle. C-FOED sustained substantial damage to the right wing. The Twin Otter sustained substantial damage to the nose cone, nose landing gear, both engines and propellers, and the fuselage. and the vehicle also sustained substantial damage. No injuries occurred. CADORS report 2006C0637 TSB report traced A06C0041.
