Destination airport:?

Probable Cause:

Most probably, the accident with the AN-2 RA-33599 aircraft occurred as a result of it reaching overcritical angles of attack and stall mode after performing takeoff with the maximum permissible weight and reduced power of the power plant.
Most probably, the reduced power was caused by setting the PM-1 magneto switch to position "1" before takeoff instead of position "1+2" as stipulated by the flight manual.
The most likely contributing factors were:
- long flight interruptions by both crew members prior to the emergency flight;
- shortcomings in training and interaction of crew members, as well as insufficient flight training, which resulted in loss of control over flight speed.
