A CZAW SportCruiser crashed into water near Serpukhov after performing a steep left-hand turn following a low pass.
The pilot was rescued.

The cause of the accident with the SportCruiser RA-0685G was the loss of control over the aircraft's spatial position while performing a turn towards the sun at extremely low altitude with a roll greater than the maximum allowed by the flight manual.
A contributing factor could have been the pilot's glare from the sun rays (direct and reflected from the smooth water surface)
