Aircraft flight hours:
The crew was engaged in spraying mission on behalf of a local sovkhoz located between the villages of Pryutovo and Aksakovo. The night preceding the accident, the crew failed to take a sufficient rest time. Few crop spraying flights were performed in the morning and during the lunch break, the crew drunk a lot of vodka with local farmers and started new rotations in the afternoon with illegal passengers on board. While flying at a height of about 10 to 15 meters, the aircraft banked left to an angle of 50° and crashed in a field. The captain and a passenger were killed while seven other occupants were seriously injured.
Loss of control in flight caused by an intoxicated crew whose capacities were reduced by alcohol consumption. The crew decided to embark seven farmers for a local tour which was considered as non compliant.
