An Air Inuit twin otter had an accident yesterday while attempting to take off from an island in the Hudson Bay. There were no passengers on the plane and the pilots were not hurt. The front ski of the aircraft caught the lip of an overhang on the ice/snow while taking off and teared off. The aircraft has been damaged. According to Air Inuit president, Peeta Aatami, they may have to get the plane off the island only in summer by ship or lift it out with a strong helicopter.
