    Hi all for "statistic research" I would like to ask for the cause of listed accidents (I have already info from A-B Serials book).

    I am interested in details of the accidents and cause when:

    1) it happened on non-operational flight,
    2) the supposed cause was a technical failure (engine cut etc.)

    07.12.41 T2566
    28.08.42 T2545
    27.01.43 T2951
