During a night-time flight to Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), the right engine began to leak oil. The engine failed and the propeller could not be feathered as there was no oil left in the system. The crew decided to make an emergency landing at Vypolzovo Air Base but ATC at Vypolzovo could not be reached for 50 minutes. The aircraft lost height and crash-landed in a potato field 400 metres south-west of Ozerevo and broke up.
