The An-24 operated on a flight from Simferopol to Kerch. While on final approach to Kerch the aircraft encountered an area of local fog. The crew allowed the plane to descend below the glide path until it impacted a concrete mast of a high-voltage power-line in the outskirts of Voikovo located 2,610 metres short of the runway threshold. At that time the airplane was flying 17 metres below the level of the runway.
The aircraft collided with the roof of a warehouse and crashed.
