An Antonov 26B transport plane sustained substantial damage in a takeoff accident at Magadan-Sokol Airport (GDX), Russia.
The aircraft operated on a flight from Yelizovo to Nizhnevartovsk, Russia with en route stops at Magadan, Mirnyy, and Krasnoyarsk.
During takeoff from Magadan the crew were not able to raise the nose during takeoff. The takeoff was aborted after the airplane had reached a speed of 250 km/h. The airplane failed to stop on the runway and skidded onto snow covered terrain. The right hand main gear collapsed, causing the right hand wing to contact the ground. The wing tip bent and the no. 2 engine propeller blades struck the ground.
It appeared the crew failed to complete a controls check prior to departure. Thus they did not notice the locked elevator.
