NOVOSIBIRSK, August 5. /TASS/. The Antonov An-2 plane crashed in Russia’s Kemerovo region, Siberia on Sunday, collided with a mountain. Its engine was running during the accident, the West Siberian transport investigation department of Russia’s Investigative Committee told TASS on Friday.
"Having examined the plane’s wreckage, experts said that the aircraft collided with a mountain. It has also been established that the plane’s engine was working at the moment of the crash. Therefore, the priority versions of the crash are piloting error and adverse weather conditions. Given the available data, the technical malfunction version is unlikely", the source said.
He added that the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) investigators and experts have completed the work at the crash site.
According to the Investigative Committee, the bodies of the plane’s two crew members - the aircraft technician from the Krasnoyarsk Territory and co-pilot from Bashkortostan have been identified by their relatives. The body of the crew commander, a resident of Dagestan, was identified on Wednesday.
On Sunday, the AN-2, which was carrying three people stopped communicating after being taken off from Berdsk (Novosibirsk region) in Krasnoyarsk. The next day, rescuers have found the plane in the mountains in the Kemerovo region. All three on board crew members were killed.
According to the Siberian regional center of the Emergencies Ministry, the plane crashed 40 kilometers east of the village of Krapivinsky. Rugged terrain left no chance for the single-engine biplane to make a safe landing.
