Circumstances:
The single engine airplane departed Nizhneudinsk Airport on a forest fire survey mission, carrying two observers and two pilots. Shortly after takeoff, while climbing to a height of about 150-170 metres, the engine started to vibrate. The captain decided to attempt an emergency landing when the aircraft crash landed in a marshy field located 4,9 km from the airport, coming to rest upside down. All four occupants escaped uninjured and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
