    Condolences to the Native pilot.
    Sorry could not find a place to land. In the mid-70s, as a passenger on the AN-2, he made a forced landing due to engine failure; The pilot twisted something (he helped as best he could on command) Reached the place. The route Chelyabinsk-Kustanay.

    Inaccuracy in the article: An-2 does not apply to light-engine, but to 4th-class aircraft (take-off weight up to 10 tons)

    Since he refused hospitalization, it is suggested that he killed the other pilot on the right, so it’s not a strong blow, even hospitalization is not necessary and if something is necessary to pull out and render assistance. But... request ... very sorry.
