Narrative:
An Antonov 2 biplane sustained substantial damage in a forced landing in the Sofiyivka Ipatovsk district, Russia. The pilot survived the accident.
The airplane was operating from a temporary airstrip for crop spraying flights in the area. The flights were conducted without meteorological support and without radio contact. The person who flew the airplane did not have a valid pilots license.
During one of the spraying runs the engine lost power. To avoid a collision with trees, the pilot carried out a forced landing in plowed field. The airplane nosed in after a 32 m ground run and flipped over. The engine caught fire.

Probable Cause:

CONCLUSION:
The accident to aircraft An-2 RA-68122 occurred when the aircraft nosed down while performing a landing on a plowed field, due, probably, to an engine failure.
Determining the cause of failure was not possible because fragments of the aircraft and engine were evacuated from the scene of the accident and disposed of before the arrival of the Commission of Inquiry.
The flights performed were agricutural flights by a crew of one pilot who had no legitimate evidence of being a pilot. The plane was not airworthy.
