Circumstances:
About 52 minutes after takeoff from Kiev-Borispol Airport, while cruising at an altitude of 5,100 meters, the crew was cleared to start the descent to Odessa Airport when the captain informed ATC about a fire in the cockpit. Fire extinguishers were used but without success and due to thick smoke spreading in the cockpit, the crew was unable to read their instruments. In such situation, the captain decided to reduce his altitude and to attempt an emergency landing. The aircraft belly landed in an open field, slid for few dozen meters and came to rest in flames. All 27 occupants were able to evacuate the cabin and were uninjured. The aircraft was destroyed by fire.
Probable cause:
The in-flight fire in the cockpit was the consequence of an electrical short-circuit in the wiring of a switch located in the heating system due to a design defect. It was also reported that the maintenance failed to meet standard requirements.

Circumstances:
While descending to Odessa, the crew was informed by ATC that a storm was approaching the airport from the southwest. The crew continued the approach and after passing the outer marker, encountered heavy rain falls and turbulences. On short final, the airplane lost height and passed below the glide, struck approach lights and the roof of a building. On impact, an undercarriage was sheared off and remained on the building's roof. Out of control, the airplane plunged into the earth and crashed in flames in a field located short of runway 16 threshold. Two passengers and all nine crew members were injured while 83 other occupants were unhurt. The aircraft was destroyed by a post crash fire. Three hours after the crash, the navigator died from his injuries.
Probable cause:
It was determined that the loss of height on final was the consequence of an excessive reduction of thrust on part of the crew, who engaged the aircraft in an insufficient approach speed and a subsequent descent below the glide. The presence of turbulences (downdrafts) was considered as a contributing factor.
