Few minutes after takeoff from Stavropol Airport, the pilot informed ATC about an engine failure and elected to return. Unable to maintain a safe altitude, the pilot attempted an emergency landing when the airplane belly landed in an open field located in Pelagiada, about 10 km northwest of the airport, slid for dozen meters and came to rest. The pilot was injured and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
