I also am of the opinion that there is NO way they were trying to turn off on a reverse high speed on snowy conditions. They appear to have begun to lost control long before they were at P4,
Like i said before they were trying to turn off at P4 from what the FAA was saying and i got yelled at for it. They were going way to fast for that turn off in any conditions.
P4 would have been a reverse high speed for them...almost no way they were trying to turn off.
Only a 9Kt tailwind. However the 24Kt gusting crosswind on a marginal surface condition could be fun.....
I bet they just weathervaned in the crosswind.
That's what it looks like. I believe they said the runway condition at the time was 1/1/1
