Circumstances:
On a positioning flight from Kharyaga to Ust-Tsilma, the engine failed shortly after takeoff. The crew elected to return to the airport but altitude and speed were not sufficient. After 'hopping' over a telegraph line, the left wing hit the ground and the aircraft impacted the tundra 400 metres short of runway. Both pilots and both passengers (aircraft mechanics) were killed. A day prior to the accident, the crew completed flight SU917 from Ust-Tsilma to Kharyanga via Novy Bor but the flight was interrupted in Kharyaga due to engine problems and two technicians were dispatched at Kharyaga Airport.
Probable cause:
Engine failure for undetermined reasons.

Circumstances:
The single engine airplane departed Ust-Kulom Airport at 1228LT bound for Syktyvkar with seven passengers and a crew of two on board, accompanied by a second Aeroflot AN-2 (CCCP-98382) that left at the same time. En route, weather conditions worsened and both crew lost visual contact with each other. Approaching Syktyvkar, the crew was informed about the deterioration of the weather with a limited visibility of 1,500 - 2,500 meters in snow. Few radios communications issues occurred and while descending at a height of 150 meters and making a right turn, the pilot saw the second AN-2 and made a sharp turn to avoid collision when control was lost. The airplane crashed on the icy Vychegda River, about 13 km from the Syktyvkar main Station. While the aircraft was destroyed, all nine occupants were injured. About four days later, one of the passengers died from his injuries.
Probable cause:
The main cause of the accident was the dangerous convergence of the aircraft due to the extremely irresponsible attitude of the management and dispatching personnel of the Syktyvkar ATC service to fulfill published procedures related to the organization and the control of the aircraft in deteriorated weather conditions.
