Pax on board:
Bought in 2000 and stored since, the airplane was under restoration since August 2013. 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. Both occupants escaped uninjured while the aircraft was partially destroyed by fire.
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.
