Unfallbericht:
An Ilyushin Il-62 passenger plane was destroyed when it crashed in a forest near Moscow-Sheremetyevo Airport (SVO), Russia. All 164 passengers and ten crew members were killed.
The airplane operated on a non-scheduled flight from Paris, France to Moscow with an en-route stop at Leningrad (now named St. Petersburg). The flight took off from Leningrad at 20:59. As the flight approached Sheremetyevo Airport the crew were given instructions to descend to 400 m. During the third procedure turn the airplane continued to descent at high speed and in clean configuration. The airplane descended at an IAS of 620 km/h and a vertical speed of 12 m/s until it struck the ground.
The cause of the accident was never established. Possibly the crew had been disabled by a lightning strike or the elevator control had a malfunction.
