An Angara Airlines Antonov AN-24, registration RA-47366 performing flight 2G-200 from Ulan-Ude to Nizhneangarsk (Russia) with 43 passengers and 4 crew on board, was on approach to Nizhneangarsk when the left hand engine failed. The aircraft landed on Nizhneangarsk's runway 22 in the touch down zone at 10:24L (02:24Z) following a stable approach, rolled out on the center line for some distance, then veered right off the runway, went over soft ground and impacted a building, a fire broke out. The captain and flight engineer were killed in the accident, 44 people were able to evacuate or were rescued, 7 people were injured, 37 people remained uninjured including first officer and flight attendant. The aircraft was destroyed.

Russia's Ministry Emergency Ministry reported emergency services received the emergency call at about 10:30L after the aircraft broke through a fence catching fire and collided with sewage treatment plants. 44 people were rescued, 7 of them were injured. Two people on board have been killed. A fire on board of the aircraft was quickly extinguished by emergency services. (Editorial note: these numbers suggest, in combination with the official passenger and crew count by the airline, one person is still missing).

The airline reported RA-47366 performing flight 2G-200 from Ulan-Ude to Nizhneangarsk made an emergency landing at Nizhneangarsk, veered off the runway and collided with ground infrastructure. As result of the collision a fire occurred. All 43 passengers were promptly evacuated. The captain and flight engineer were killed, the first officer and the flight attendant escaped uninjured. The captain had 34 years of experience and 15,702 hours total, the first officer 20 years of experience and 6,315 hours total, the flight engineer 35 years of experience and 13,728 hours. The Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC/MAK) have opened an investigation.

Rosaviatsia reported the crew declared "Distress" about 30km (16nm) from the airport reporting the failure of the left hand engine. Emergency services took their stand by positions for the arrival. On landing the aircraft went off the runway, collided with technical structures of the airport and caught fire. All passengers are alive, the captain and flight engineer died in the accident.

The MAK reported an accident happened to AN-24 RA-47366 at Nizhneangarsk. Two crew were killed, the aircraft burned partially down. A commission has been formed and has begun work to investigate the accident.

Later Jun 27th 2019 (about 20:00z) Rosaviatsia reported the aircraft carrying 43 passengers and 4 crew was about 30km from Nizhneangarsk descending through FL100 when the left hand engine failed. The aircraft landed 12 minutes later but rolled off the runway, collided with treatment facilities and ignited. The passengers were evacuated, the aircraft partially burned down, the captain and flight engineer were killed, a number of passengers requested medical assistance.

On Jun 5th 2020 it was discovered that the MAK had silently (without any announcement or entry in the updates' list) released their interim report in Russian only reporting the rotation was originally planned to be flown by a captain, a first officer under training and a supervising instructing captain. About 30 minutes prior to departure the captain began to increasingly feel ill and reported with dispatch, who decided the instructing captain should take over for the rotation. The aircraft thus departed Nizhneangarsk with the instructor captain (58, ATPL, 15,167 hours total, 2,092 hours on type), the first officer under training (43, CPL, 6,012 hours total, 538 hours on type) and a flight engineer (57, FEL, 12,853 hours total, 1,616 hours on type) in the cockpit.

Due to weather the departure from Ulan-Ude was initially delayed by about one hour, then was postponed until the next day (Jun 27th) for departure at 08:30L (00:30Z). The crew went to a hotel in close proximity of the airport.

The aircraft departed at 09:03L the following morning. Following an uneventful flight the aircraft was descending towards Nizhneangarsk for an NDB approach to Nizhneangarsk's runway 23, weather conditions were reported to the crew as winds from 050 degrees at 6 knots, visibility above 10km, few cumulonimbus clouds at 1500 meters, temperature 20 degrees C, QFE 713 hectoPascal, runway was dry, "grip 0.6". Descending through FL100 about 64km/34nm from the airfield the left hand engine failed due to oil pressure reduction. The captain (instructor) took control of the aircraft, disengaged the autopilot, the automatic feathering of the engine was verified. The aircraft continued the approach, joined the NDB approach and touched down on runway 23 with both main gear but began to deviate to the right after touchdown, went off the runway, through the airport fence, collided with a building and caught fire. The flight attendant evacuated the passengers through the rear exits. The first officer was unable to rescue the captain and flight engineer who were trapped and showed no response. The first officer evacuated through the left forward emergency hatch.

The captain and the flight engineer died as result of the accident, one crew member and 9 passengers received serious, another crew member and 23 passengers as well as two people on the ground received minor injuries, 11 passengers remained uninjured.

The MAK reported the accident flight was the third after maintenance that lasted from Apr 20th to Jun 22th 2019.

Immediately after the accident ATC initiated another measurement of the weather data, which did not differ signficantly from the data radioed to the aircraft.
