Summary: After lifting off the cargo plane entered a steep, nose-up attitude, banked to the left, and crashed. The pilot lost control of the aircraft while conducting a go-around from a aborted landing on the ice strip. The aircraft's center of gravity on the accident flight was beyond the aft C of G limit. The crew did not recalculate the aircraft's weight and balance for the second flight. Leaks in the heater shroud allowed carbon monoxide gas to contaminate cockpit and cabin air.
