This happened just north of Winnipeg, and the aircraft was the first version with PT-6-67 Turboprops.

The Canadian DOT concluded that the control locks were still locked when the aircraft took off.

You who have flown the Caribou wonder how that could have happened when it is physically impossible to advance the throttles with the lock on - but this aircraft was being modified (still restricted category) and the throttle quadrant was not properly rigged to accommodate the throttle levers for the turbine engines.

Three people were on board; two test pilots and an engineer and all perished.

My god! It's crazy that no one realized the controls were locked! Where was the checklist!
