Aircraft flight hours:
From May 28 till May 31, the airplane was dispatched in Kalinovskaya for spraying missions on behalf of the Lenin's kolkhoz. While parked, a technician decided to takeoff and to make a local tour. Shortly after takeoff, while flying at a height of 500 meters, he lost control of the airplane that descended by at an angle of 60° and crashed in flames in an open field. The sole occupant was killed.
The technician was not intoxicated and the assumption that the accident was the consequence of suicide was not ruled out.
