The airplane operated on a cargo flight from Balashov to Kursk with a cargo of three M-105 engines. During takeoff at least one
of the engines broke loose. It broke through the cabin floor and trapped the control cable of the horizontal stabiliser which was running under the floor. The pilot tried to steer the aircraft with the trim tabs of the stabiliser, but to no avail. The aircraft crashed in the steppe some 7 km after take-off, caught fire and burnt out.
