      The emergency landing was caused by the engine power loss and flameout in the air due to destruction of the exhaust collector can type combustor and burnthrough of the carburator intake valve followed by hight temperature burnt gases ingestion into the engine carburator intake. 
      The destruction of the exhaust collector can type combustor most probably occured on the corrosion mechanism energised in conditions of the material heat during the engine operation using motor petrol. Power factor resulted in initial crack formation most probably was caused by residual tenses in the material of manufacture origine caused during can type combustor manufacture.
