The An-2 operated on a crop-spraying flight for the kolkhoz (collective farm) "Pobeda" at Kamennaya Sarma (Buzuluk district of
the Orenburg region) when the engine failed, probably due to a carburettor problem. As an immediate forced landing was not possible due to the terrain the pilot flew a left turn, but the aircraft lost height, crash-landed and nosed over.
