The airplane was prepared for a spraying flight on October 9, 2011. The engine was tested at 10:00 and worked satisfactory. The airplane was then flown from an airfield near Yaroslavl to an airstrip near Zasovkaya. From there the airplane started spraying sunflower fields. During one of the runs the airplane struck a lightning protection wire of a 110 kV power transmission line. The airplane crashed into a field, flipped upside down and caught fire.
CONCLUSION (translated from Russian):
The cause of the accident without casualties to the plane An-2 RA-81514 was a violation of the established safe obstacle clearance in the performance of aviation-chemical works, which led to a collision with the lightning protection wire transmission line and the ground.
A contributing factor was the performance of an incomplete flight crew. According to the An-2 Flight Manual the minimum crew for aerial chemical works is the commander of the aircraft and a co-pilot.
