An Antonov 2 biplane, RA-40309, was destroyed when it crashed shortly after takeoff from Most Pyssa, Russia.
The Komi Avia plane operated on a flight from Koslan to Vazhgort, Puchkoma, Chuprova, Vazhgort, Most Pyssa and back to Koslan. The flight to Most Pyssa was uneventful. But weather was deteriorating and it was snowing during the 20 minutes the plane was parked at Most Pyssa. The crew decided to continue for the last leg of the flight, but they failed to remove the snow from the wings prior to departure.
As the An-2 was turning left immediately after takeoff, the airplane stalled and crashed into a forest. A fire broke out.
