An Antonov 24B passenger plane, CCCP-46269, was destroyed when it struck terrain while on approach to Amderma Airport (AMV), Russia. The airplane operated on a domestic flight from Arkhangelsk (ARH).

The collision with the ground occurred at an indicated speed of 206 km/h and a vertical rate of descent of 6 m/s. The airplane broke up and the main wreckage came to rest on the sandy shore of the Kara Sea at 20-30 m from the water's edge.
