Pax on board:
Around 2000LT, the pilot departed Tersky on an unauthorized local flight with four passengers. While cruising at a height of about 50 metres, the aircraft went out of control and crashed in an open field located one km from the departure point. A female passenger was seriously injured while four other occupants were killed. The aircraft was destroyed.
The pilot failed to prepare the flight according to procedures and did not follow the pre-takeoff checklist. As a result, he departed Tersky with the flaps and ailerons stilled locked.
