Weather was poor with light snow, low clouds and a visibility of 1500 m, causing the suspension of training flights. When weather began to improve, the An-2 took off from Goretskoye Airstrip for a short flight to Krasny Kut Airport. The aircraft entered a turn at an altitude of 100-120 m during which altitude was lost. The airplane impacted the snow-covered steppe 2,100 metres from the runway. The aircraft was consumed by fire. Probably the aircraft had taken off with caged gyro horizons and the pilot had lost
spatial awareness.
