Circumstances:
On final approach to Frunze, both engines failed. The crew attempted to make an emergency landing in a field. After touch down, the aircraft hit a drainage ditch and came to rest in a ravine. All occupants survived but the airplane was damaged beyond repair. It appears the Tupolev ANT-9 is a three engine aircraft but this model was a twin engine PS-9 version.
Probable cause:
Double engine failure on approach.
