On a crop praying flight for the state horse farm "Nemunas" at Pagėgiai (Šilute district of Lithuania), the single engine airplane collided with a high voltage power line near Pagėgiai while flying against the low sun at a height of 20 meters. The airplane stalled and crashed in flames 130 metres further. It was destroyed by impact forces and a post crash fire. Both pilots were seriously injured but the copilot died from his injuries in the evening.
The crew adopted a wrong flight configuration of which the organization was poor.
