The Antonov 2SX operated on a crop-spraying flight for the sovkhoz (state farm) "Nekrasovo" in the Mikhailov district of the Ryazan region when the pilot flew a steep left turn at a height of some 20-30 metres in order to avoid collision with a high-voltage power-line. The aircraft lost height and crashed in a field 340 metres from Natalinka, came to rest upside down and caught fire.
