Details:
  • While in flight, the engine overheated necessitating a forced landing. During the forced landing, the starbord wing struck a tree, spinning the aircraft and causing considerable damage. Vasiljevs was essentially unhurt.
  • The aircraft was transported to the workshops at Spilve where, over the course of a few weeks, it was repaired and returned to service.
