The Tupolev took off from Tallinn at 08:55 and it appeared the undercarriage didn't retract. The flight diverted to Leningrad (because of fog at Tallinn) at low altitude. At 11:00 the aircraft started to circle the city at 1650 feet. The eighth and last was started at 12:10 when, at 13 miles from the airport, the no. 1 engine quit. The remaining engine quit shortly thereafter and a ditch was carried out in the 300 metres wide River Neva. All passengers remained on aboard as the floating aircraft was towed ashore.
