[NTSB AAR-78-7, ¶3.2.] The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probably cause of the accident was a stall that resulted from the pilot's control inputs aggravated by airframe icing while the pilot was under the influence of alcohol. Contributing to the cause of this accident was the failure of the other flightcrew members to prevent the captain from attempting the flight.
