An unregistered Antonov An-2 biplane crashed during a crop spraying flight near Raduga, Novoaleksandrovsk District, Russia. The aircraft came down hard, breaking both lower wings and the right-hand main landing gear.
The pilot fled the scene and the aircraft was later removed from the field.
When authorities of the Southern Investigation Department for Transport of the Russian Investigative Committee arrived at the scene, only fragments of the aircraft were found. They interviewed workers of nearby farms, allowing them to find out the location of the hiding pilot, as well as those involved in hiding the aircraft.
Investigators then established that the aircraft was not registered, and the pilot did not have the appropriate license to perform agricultural work.
