The airplane operated on a crop spraying flight in the Slavyansk-na-Kubani district of the Krasnodar region.
The engine lost power shortly after take-off due to the use of sub-standard E95 fuel. The pilot started to drop the load of chemicals and attempted an emergency landing in a soya field but the aircraft hit the slope of an irrigation drain, nosed over into the drain and burnt.
Probable cause (translated from Russian):
Causes of the accident with the aircraft AN-2 RA-01105 was nosing down of the aircraft in its collision with a parapet channel when performing a forced landing.
Necessity of the forced landing was most probably due to a drop in engine power due to refueling of the aircraft with substandard automotive gasoline.
Contributing factors of the accident were:
- captain's lack of knowledge of the flight area and layout of cultivated fields;
- lack of braking during the forced landing;
- lack of a cockpit flight crew member (co-pilot).
