Considering the damage and the density of the forest, you're lucky to leave the airplane walking.

No doubt STOL characteristics and rugged construction is a good thing sometimes. Engine failure at low altitude? The pic is unique and dramatically beautiful to put it midly.

Wow! One of the most dramatic shots I've seen on A.Net so far. Those -2's are tough though.

I've always thought it a very eerie sight to see ruins or an airplane wreck in the middle of the wilderness . . . beautiful lighting. Exquisite photo!

Nope, nobody died here.

Crew: 0 fatalities / 3 on board
Passengers: 0 fatalities / 0 on board
Total: 0 fatalities / 3 on board

Shortly after takeoff from Zielona Gora, the engine quit. The Antonov crashed into a forest, causing all wings to be destroyed and extensive damage to the fuselage. The airplane performed flights for Polish National Forests.

Even though the photo depicts such a tragic event, the beauty that shows still is great. I love the lighting, and how it shines on the wreckage. But still, that bird is tough to remain largely intact, 'cept for the wings.

That has got to be one of the saddest things that I have ever seen. I have always liked the An-2. It pains me to see one in such a condition.
