Narrative:
A pilot in training and the instructor performed a training flight to practice forced landings at the airport and in the field. After taking off from LKTB, they made three circuits and landings at this airport. Subsequently, they flew to the area north of Brno, where they carried out two successful exercises of forced landing in a field. They continued their flight to the village of Bořitov, where they performed another forced landing exercise. During this exercise, during the approach to the sighted area, the aircraft caught a high-voltage conductor, which it broke. After breaking this wire, the plane went into a steep dive and hit the ground. After the impact, it rolled inverted.
The plane was destroyed.

The cause of the plane crash
Both crew members overlooked the high-voltage power lines during the selection of the emergency landing drill area and the subsequent landing approach maneuver.
