Narrative:
The An-2 plane departed Nikitskoye (Kurkino district of the Tula region) bound for the sovkhoz (state farm) "Pobeda" in Russia.
Control of the flaps and ailerons probably failed immediately after takeoff. As it was about to conduct a crop spraying flight, the pilot dropped the load and managed to control the airplane. After flying for 8 km the aircraft banked to the left, turned upside down and crashed in a field of the sovkhoz (state farm) "Polibino" 1.5 km north-west of Maryinka (Dankov district of the Lipetsk region). It caught fire and burnt out. The pilot was killed.
