Aircraft flight cycles:
On a crop-spraying flight for the kolkhoz (collective farm) 'Pobeda' at Kamennaya Sarma (Buzuluk district of the Orenburg region), the engine failed (probably due to a carburetor problem) while the aircraft was flying at a height of some 20-25 metres near Kamennaya Sarma. As an immediate forced landing was not possible due to the terrain configuration, the pilot initiated a left turn when the aircraft lost height, stalled and crashed. A pilot was killed while the second pilots was injured.
Engine failure caused by carburetor problem.
