The airplane operated on a fumigation flight to combat locusts on a hillside. It contacted power lines at a height of 15 m when flying into the sun.
Probable Cause:The accident was caused by a combination of factors.
- The crew's attention was diverted from monitoring for the presence of obstacles in the flight path.
- Lack of recommendations for flight crew on how to conduct fumigation flights over hilly terrain without obstacle markings
The collision with the transmission lines was also caused by the fact that airplane flew towards the sun.
