#"Notre mission de ce mardi était un vol d'entraînement d'assaut aérien. Nous nous entraînons spécialement pour ce qui concerne les destructions de cibles au sol. Ce type de vol dure en moyenne deux heures. Alors que nous étions à très basse altitude, nous avons vu une masse sombre frôler l'appareil. Puis nous avons senti l'impact avec quelque chose, et nous avons rapidement senti une odeur de plumes grillées ! Le moteur fonctionnait toujours bien, mais, dans le doute et par sécurité, il fallait que nous nous posions rapidement. Nous avons dérouté et faisons cap ici, en attendant que l'appareil soit réparé. Soit les mécaniciens pourront réparer rapidement, soit il faudra faire venir des pièces spéciales. Le choc a d'ailleurs cabossé l'entrée d'air du côté droit. Reste à savoir si le moteur est très endommagé."

["Our mission on Tuesday was a training flight air assault.  We train specially as regards the destruction of ground targets. This type of flight lasts about two hours.
While we were at very low altitude, we saw a dark mass brushing unit. Then we felt the impact with something, and we quickly noticed a smell of roasted feathers!
The engine was still running well, but in doubt and security, we had to ask ourselves quickly. We're confused and heading here, until the unit is repaired.  Mechanics can be repaired quickly, it will bring in special items. The shock has also dented the air intake on the right. Remains whether the engine is badly damaged."]

"Aurel Vlaicu"
Romanian Air Force  School in Boboc
[took off from] Tuzla
Crashed very shortly after takeoff from Tuzla on a paratroopers training flight for the Navy divers unit. After reaching 150m altitude, it started banking to the left, stalled and hit the ground, where it cartwheeled, caught fire and turned upside down. 11 killed on the spot (4 Air Force, 7 Navy). Three survivors (one severely injured) taken to a hospital in Bucharest by Medevac choppers. The 8th Navy casualty, Lt. Liviu Antim arrived at the hospital in a coma and passed away during the night. The other two survivors (one Air Force, one Navy) are stable:  and Maistru Militar cls IV Marius Nazare.
 
Cause is undetermined yet, either technical or human error (wrong Center of Gravity or a premature takeoff followed by a too steep climb resulting in a stall). Stalls are very uncommon for the An-2, which is widely regarded as a very docile and tolerant aircraft.
