An Antonov 2 passenger plane, operated by Polyarnye Avialinii, was damaged beyond repair following a forced landing near Vilyuisk. Russia.
The airplane originated in Vilyuisk and was en route to Ugulet Airport. Shortly after takeoff the pilot was forced to carry out an emergency landing. The undercarriage bogged down in soft ground and a fire erupted, which destroyed the airplane. All occupants safely evacuated the airplane.

Probable Cause:

The pilot had to carry out an emergency landing due to an increase in oil temperature and an oil pressure drop. The pilot did not turn off the ignition prior to the emergency landing, nor did he shut off the fuel flow. A fire erupted after landing, causing the destruction of the plane. The cause of the rising oil temperature and pressure drop was not found because of the damage to the engine parts.
