The couple were killed when their single-engine Piper Cherokee hit a Cessna-150 in mid-air
Wreckage of the Piper was strewn in the snow close to Gostilitsy airport after it plummeted to the ground from a height of 1,000ft.
The Cessna with only pilot-instructor Valery Kalashnikov on board made a successful emergency landing with propeller and front wheel damage after the collision.
The pilot was hospitalised.
The dead couple had been together ten years and the planned 15-minute light aircraft flight with views over tsarist capital St. Petersburg was a birthday gift from engineer Ivan to his wife.
Its cost was around £50 and they were killed yesterday, on her birthday.
In her final post on social media, talented nail artist Arina had written: ‘My 30 year long roller coaster continues. No smart thoughts. We fly further.’
Friends posted their condolences on her account.
Earlier Arina had posted that during the ‘uncertainty and chaos’ of the Covid-19 year ‘we found the time and energy to fulfil our dreams*may the force be with us.’

The planes had taken off one minute apart before the crash which was described by the Russian Investigative Committee as ‘head on’.
Both pilots were ‘experienced’.
A criminal case has been opened as investigators examine whether there was ‘negligence’ or ‘violation of safety rules’ leading to the collision.
