Circumstances:
Pilot, sole on board, was performing a crop spraying flight on behalf of the 'Svoboda' Agricultural Cooperation. While flying at low altitude, single engine aircraft hit power cables and crashed in flames in an open field 99 meters further. The pilot was killed and the aircraft was destroyed by impact forces and post impact fire. Pilot was probably tired at the time of the accident and his capabilities were certainly reduced.
