In the Zaporizhia region of southern Ukraine, a Ukrainian Air Force Antonov An-26 transport plane crashed, killing one person and injuring two others.
According to the regional administration of Zaporizhia, the An-26B-100 was performing a “technical flight” when it apparently collided with a power wire. The Russian military has taken up part of the territory.
Antonov developed the An-26, a twin-engine turboprop cargo and utility aircraft, between 1969 and 1986. Another Ukrainian Air Force Antonov An-26 transport jet crashed near the town of Zhukivtsi, southeast of Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital city, on the first day of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, on February 24, 2022.
