Beschrijving:
The An-2 biplane was heading to a field for a crop spraying demonstration. After reducing power to the cruise setting, a loss of power occurred. The aircraft sustained substantial damage in the forced landing that followed.
The power loss was caused by a mechanical failure in the throttle control system because of inadequate maintenance.
