Following a loss of engine power, the aircraft, a 2016 replica built ANBO II, experienced an apparent aerodynamic stall/spin and a subsequent impact with airport terrain at the Cesis Airfield (EVCA), in Priekuļi, Latvia.
The replica airplane sustained substantial damage and one of the two occupants onboard was fatally injured. The second occupant received serious injuries.

The ANBO II was a parasol-wing monoplane aircraft built in Lithuania in 1927 as a pilot trainer for the Army. It was eventually reequipped with more powerful engine for the Aero Club of Lithuania in 1931 before being written off in a crash in 1934.
