Narrative:
The Antonov An-2T biplane was performing a display flight at an airshow at Chernoye Airport when it impacted the runway, killing both occupants.
The airshow at Chernoye was dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Antonov An-2. During the day several aircraft were engaged in air displays. The flight crew of RA-35171 was briefed to conduct some low passes of the runway and some simple aerobatics between altitude of 100 and 600 meters.
RA-35171 took off at 12:11 and after circling at 400 m, began aerobatics manoeuvres over the runway.
The aircraft was coming out of a barrel roll and was turning onto runway heading. Altitude was lost during a sharp left hand turn. The wings contacted the ground and the aircraft impacted the grass runway inverted. The aircraft slid across the grass and a post-impact fire erupted.

The Russian aviation regulator Rosaviatsia reported that the Certificate of Airworthiness of the aircraft expired almost 5 years ago - in November 2012. Additionaly, both crew members did not have an An-2 type rating.
The aerobatics manoeuvres performed by the aircraft were not allowed on the An-2.
