  • Lim-5 P nr 1D 06-07 / 607. It served in 45 PLM in Babimost. On 1963-10-25 there was a collision. SB Lim-2 (CS-102 No. 612786 nb. 686) invaded the parked plane. Both aircraft were repaired. On 1964-03-14, the right main landing gear did not come out during landing. At 20:06, the pilot landed on the ground strip, for two points. During the roll-out, the aircraft began to turn, so the pilot retracted the landing gear and completed the landing gear without landing gear. The roll-out length was 1,100 m. The aircraft was repaired. On 1968-02-26, there was a collision while landing with Lim-2 aircraft No. 1B 08-09. Both aircraft landed with a time difference of just 20 seconds. Lim-2 landed first and quickly lost speed, then slowly taxied to the descent into the taxiway. The second one landed Lim-5 P, and the pilot, due to smoke over the lane from a nearby village, had limited visibility. He noticed the Lim-2 at the last moment. The Lim-5 P turned sharply, but it still collided. The speed of the Lim-5 P was 80 km / h. The planes collided and the Lim-2 plane turned 360 degrees. The Lim-5 P hit the Lim-2 wing with a suspended fuel tank and broke it off, over a length of 2 m. The Lim-5 P was repaired and the Lim-2 fuselage was rebuilt as an SB Lim-2 aircraft. On 1968-10-25 the plane was crashed. At 21:24, lieutenant pilot Roman Blicharz took off to NZWA. Task - capture in the stratosphere. After take-off, at an altitude of 150 m, there was a engine failure and fire. The pilot also heard strange creaks in the back of the fuselage. The pilot at an altitude of 700 m and at a speed of 320 km / h, was successfully catapulted (essentially by removing the curtain). The plane crashed in the woods, 5 km from the airport. The reason was a crack in one combustion chamber due to a material defect. The flames came out of the combustion chamber and at the same time the turbine blades overheated, which lengthened and rubbed against the interior of the engine. As a result, the rotational speed of the damaged engine decreased.

Being 60 km from the airport, he received a command to lower to 4,000 m. He lost spatial orientation by puncturing subsequent clouds.
