The Antonov An-2 was engaged in spraying a field of sunflowers when it touched tree tops at 12-15 m during a low-level turn. The aircraft then hit the ground, causing the left-hand upper wing to break.

Probable Cause:

The aircraft accident with the An-2 RA-40389 aircraft was caused by a collision with tree crowns and subsequent ground impact. It is most likely that the following factors contributed to the aircraft accident:
- flying at an altitude that does not provide safe passage over an obstacle when performing aerial application;
- failure to take into account the presence of artificial and natural obstacles in the flight area;
- the absence of the pilot's caution when flying at an extremely low altitude;
- influence of wind and turbulence.
It is not excluded that the aircraft may have been controlled by alcohol intoxication.
