According to the CBC update, the plane has been spotted but there’s no update on the condition of the pilots.

Was this a medevac plane or a regular charter plane? The news articles are writing about a charter plane, but I've heard rumours that it might have been a medevac plane?

If it were a medevac flight I would suspect there would have been a flight nurse with them.

It is way to early to speculate. However unless they flew all night i would think fatigue was not an issue considering they went missing at 09:30

Or fatigue could be that they were On minimum rest with few days of 14h+ duty in the body. Will see. Rest In Peace to the crew.

The strange thing is that within the same 2 day span, a King Air 200 went down in Alaska. So perhaps something to do with the Aircraft type?

+1. Most likely a coincidence if anything.

My thoughts and condolences to the families and the fellow coworkers and Air Tindi.

Were these guys shooting an approach? Were they enroute? Very few details. This company had a fatal C208 accident not all that long ago. No red flags here.
