The An-2 took off from Voroshilovgrad (now Luhansk) when the pilot decided to commit suicide due to marital problems. He took off alone and directed his aircraft into the 4-storey building where he was living (house No. 10 in the 27th district of Voroshilovgrad). Several flats were seriously damaged and a fire erupted, but nobody in the house was injured while the pilot was killed on impact.
