Narrative:
The aircraft operated on a flight from Alma-Ata to Kazan with an en route stop at Karaganda. On board were high-ranking party and state officials of Kazakhstan on. After takeoff the aircraft entered low clouds and fog with turbulence. Severe icing caused the pilot to return to Alma-Ata, but the aircraft lost height while flying a steep left turn at a height of some 100-150 metres. About 6 km north-west of Dmitriyevka (now Baiserke), the left wing touched the ground and the aircraft crashed, caught fire and burnt out.
