Détails:
At 08:06 the flight departed Barrow (PBA) runway 24. Within 2 minutes after takeoff a mayday call was issued by the pilot, following which the aircraft descended into the water. The airplane came to rest submerged in 21 feet of water, approximately 200 yards offshore.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot's disregard for lateral fuel loading limits, his improper removal of frost prior to takeoff, and the resulting inadvertent stall/spin. Factors involved in this accident were the improper asymmetrical fuel loading which reduced lateral aircraft control, the self-induced pressure to takeoff on time by the pilot, and inadequate surveillance of the company operations by company management."
