Accident: Addenbrooke Island, BC. Lat 51.35N, Long 127.40W. 06-Apr-1988. Operating for Orca Air, the pilot flew an early morning flight from Port McNeill to Yeo Island, located 15 miles north of Bella Bella, BC. Later in the morning, while attempting to return to Port McNeill with one passenger and 800 pounds of fish on board, the pilot encountered strong, gusty winds, low ceilings, snow squalls, and reduced visibilities. To take advantage of better visibility over the land, the pilot chose to fly across Addenbrook Island. As he approached a ridge of high ground, it became apparent that the aircraft would not clear the top. The pilot started a turn to avoid the terrain when the aircraft suddenly entered a descent which the pilot could not arrest, and the aircraft crashed into the trees. The aircraft was substantially damaged; the pilot and passenger were uninjured. The pilot was qualified and licensed to fly the aircraft. There were no recorded aircraft unserviceabilities before the flight. The aircraft was loaded near its maximum weight capacity. Before leaving Port McNeill, the pilot obtained the marine weather forecast, which warned of gale-force winds and showers that would produce snow squalls and reduced visibilities. Marine forecasts normally do not include cloud information. The pilot reported that, during the previous flight, the weather, although passable, became progressively worse en route to Yeo Island. He expected similar conditions for the return trip; however, he found that the weather had deteriorated. A wind blowing over high ground usually produces downdrafts on the leeward side. The downdrafts are most severe near the higher ground. The strong winds over Addenbrook Island were blowing across high ground and toward the low-flying aircraft. When the aircraft approached the high ground, the vertical rate of the downflow exceeded the aircraft's ability to maintain level flight, and the pilot was unable to prevent the aircraft from flying into the trees.
