Circumstances:

Pilots tried to takeoff from a road located in Onikeyevo, near Kirovograd. After rotation, the engine failed and the aircraft crashed and burned near a farm. Both pilots and the passenger, the head of the farm, escaped uninjured but the aircraft was destroyed. It appears that the flight was illegal as the CofA was expired since April 26, 2008.
