Ukrainian An-26 transport plane crashes near Zaporizhia
An Antonov An-26 transport aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force has crashed, killing one and injuring two, in the Zaporizhia region in southeastern Ukraine.
The An-26B-100 was carrying out a “technical flight” when it reportedly hit a power line, according to the regional administration of Zaporizhia. The region is partly occupied by the Russian armed forces.
The An-26 is a twin-engine turboprop cargo and utility aircraft built by Antonov between 1969 and 1986.
