Report that missing An-2 plane found proves false
It was reported on January 26 that a Nizhny Tagil resident had information on the whereabouts of the lost plane, though there has not been a confirmation of the sighting, Itar-Tass reports.
"It was established that the aircraft depicted in a photo presented by the Nizhny Tagil resident had no relation to the An-2 plane that went missing in the Urals last June," a spokeswoman for the Ural transport investigation department said, according to Itar-Tass.
On June 11, Khatib Kashapov piloted a crop-duster An-2 without permission. The plane belonged to Chelyabinsk company Avia Zov. The pilot and 12 passengers went missing, resulting in a long and extensive search of more than one million square kilometers, which was officially halted on November 13.
A criminal case was then opened on charges of violations of air traffic safety and aircraft operation rules that resulted in the death through negligence of one or more people, Itar-Tass reports.
