The Ilyushin had arrived on July 12 after a flight from Baku (Azerbaijan) and was scheduled to fly on to Nikolaev. The aircraft was loaded with general cargo (a.o. watermelons), which was completed at 21:40. However, the airplane was overloaded 15.5 -25.5 tonnes over the maximum permitted weight for a departure in the given circumstances, and 13-23 tonnes over the certified maximum allowable takeoff weight. The plane took off from Ras al Khaimah runway 34 at 23:11 and climbed slowly to a height of 180 m, accelerating to 400 km/h. As the flaps were retracted, the GPWS sounded and the pilot incorrectly moved the control column forward. The aircraft flew into the sea and broke up.
