On 26 December 2013 at around 21:45 local time, an Antonov An-12 crashed into military warehouses near Irkutsk in eastern Siberia. Its six crew and three passengers all perished,[1][2] but the plane remained intact.[3] After the crash, there was a fire.[4] The crash site is close to the Trans-Siberian Railway's Batareinaya station.[5]

The aircraft was en route from Novosibirsk's Yeltsovka Airport to Irkutsk-2 Airport[6] and had begun the landing phase of its flight. The aircraft, owned by the Irkut Research and Production Corporation, an aircraft manufacturer which has a factory in Irkutsk,[4] was said to have been transporting a cargo of aircraft parts.[5] It was last seen on radar when it was one kilometre from the runway.[6] The aircraft had been built in December 1963[7] and "was within 130 hours of its 20,000-hour design airframe life". Vladimir Markin, speaking for the Russian Investigative Committee, said that "piloting error, malfunction of the airplane and bad weather" were being investigated as possible causes.[1]
