Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight from Tselinograd, the crew started the approach to the Stepnogorsk Airfield equipped with a grassy runway of 1,305 meters long. After a wrong approach configuration, the pilot-in-command was too high over the threshold and the approach speed was excessive (240 km/h iso the requested 210-220 km/h). This caused the aircraft to land too far down the runway, about 893 meters past the runway threshold. The crew started the braking procedure about 300 meters before the end of the runway so the aircraft was unable to stop within the remaining distance. It overran at a speed of 88 km/h and struck a 1,2 meter high concrete pillar that was part of the perimeter fence and came to rest. Despite the accident and the fact that the airplane was severely damaged, the captain decided to roll to the main apron so he added engine power when the aircraft hit obstacles, ditches and holes in the ground. Propellers broke away and the captain stopped the aircraft. All 52 occupants evacuated safely but the aircraft was written off.
Probable cause:
Wrong approach configuration on part of the crew who continued the final approach too high and at an excessive speed, causing the aircraft to land too far down a short runway. The crew failed to initiate a go-around procedure, which was considered as a contributory factor.

Circumstances:
The crew departed Dnepropetrovskoye, in the suburb of Tselinograd, at 2115LT, on a short flight to a local airport located 12 km from there, following a spraying mission on behalf of the sovkhoz of Dnepropetrovskoye. While flying at a speed of 220 km/h in a relative low altitude, the single engine airplane banked left to an angle of 25° then nosed down and crashed in an open field located 3,5 km from the point of departure, bursting into flames. All three occupants were killed.
Probable cause:
It was determined that the loss of control was the consequence of downdrafts and unpredictable turbulences from a thunderstorm area approaching the accident zone. A poor flight preparation was considered as a contributing factor.

Circumstances:
On a test flight from Valikhanovo after an engine repair during crop-spraying operations in the Valikhanovo district (Kokchetau region of Kazakhstan) when one of the propeller blades broke away in flight due to fatigue fracture, causing violent vibration, whereupon the engine mount failed. The aircraft turned to the left and the propeller cut through the spar of the left lower wing, causing the wing box to collapse. Aircraft went out of control and span into a field 2 km SSW of the "Yuzhny" collective farm (at N52°33' E71°36'). Both pilots and the sole passenger (an aircraft mechanic) were killed. The propeller had been fitted only the day before the accident.
Probable cause:
Propeller blade's separated in flight.
