Description

The battery voltage was too low and the commander decided to hand start the engine by turning the propeller. A passenger in the cockpit, that was supposed to assist, reacted by applying increased power when the engine started. The aircraft skidded on the slippery apron and was stopped short of hitting a parked snow plow.
