For some reason I had pictured that it was in the water.
This shows I was was wrong in my thinking.

the weather in the area was extremely poor.
Seems like CFIT is the most likely cause. Similar to the Pickle Lake Caravan accident. I wonder if the crash site is elevated terrain. My condolences to the families of the deceased. Maybe the survivers can shed light on the visibility at the time.

One of several possibilities that the TSB will investigate, no doubt with an open mind to other potential causes.

One big thing the TSB has to work with is interviewing the survivors.
