On Saturday 2nd September 2017, an Antonov An-2T biplane was performing a display flight at an airshow at Chernoye Airport when it impacted the runway, killing both occupants.
RA-35171 took off at 12:11 and after circling at 400 m, began aerobatics maneuvers over the runway. The aircraft was coming out of a barrel roll and was turning onto runway heading. Altitude was lost during a sharp left-hand turn. The wings contacted the ground and the aircraft impacted the grass runway inverted.
Additionally, both crew members did not have an An-2 type rating. The aerobatics maneuvers performed by the aircraft were not allowed on the An-2.
