Circumstances:
Prior to a spraying mission on a plantation of the Mikhail farm, the pilot made a pleasure flight with the son of the farmer, aged 13. While flying at low height in the early morning, the single engine aircraft hit power cables and crashed in flames in a field located 2 km from the Mikhail farmhouse, in the Tatsinsky district of the Rostov region. While the pilot was unhurt, the boy was injured. The aircraft built in 1980 was totally destroyed by fire. It appears the aircraft did not have a valid CofA and the time between overhauls had been exceeded last 10 of April.
