Circumstances:
Following an illegal flight from Yerbogachon (Irkutsk region), the crew started a night approach to Tayozhny (Boguchany district of the Krasnoyarsk region) Airfield. In poor visibility due to the night, the crew was unable to establish a visual contact with the abandoned airstrip. Two approaches were abandoned. During a third attempt, the single engine airplane impacted trees and crashed in a wooded area located 35 metres short of runway, bursting into flames. Both pilots were killed and both passengers were seriously injured.
Probable cause:
According to investigations, the aircraft did not have any CofA or registration certification, and it was unknown to the Russian registry. It is believed that the flight was illegal as the crew was attempting to land on an abandoned airfield and therefore not equipped for night operations.

The crew (one pilot and one engineer), decided to perform a test flight in the region of Sevryukovo (Korocha District of the Belgorod region). En route, the engine failed, forcing the crew to attempt an emergency landing. The aircraft impacted ground and crashed, coming to rest upside down and bursting into flames.

Probable cause:
An investigation by the Interstate Aviation Committee revealed that the airplane carried a false registration and was flown without a certificate of airworthiness. Since the airplane was not officially registered, the IAC terminated their investigation.
