A Sunwest Aviation Swearingen SA227-DC Metro 23, registration C-GMWW performing freight flight CNK-1022 from Saskatoon,SK to Regina,SK (Canada) with 2 crew, skidded off runway 13 and came to a stop in a snowbank about 50 feet/15 meters off the runway while landing at Regina at 07:54L (13:54Z). No injuries occurred, the aircraft sustained minor damage to the propellers.
