While en-route to Nizhneangarsk, the weather rapidly became worse and the airport was closed. The crew elected to change course to Ust'-Barguzin. During the descent the crew intentionally misinformed ATC that they could see the ground. Shortly afterwards the aircraft struck the slope of a mountain at the east coast of the lake Baykal (Svyatoi Nos peninsula) at height of 1300 m about 30 km from the airfield.
The airplane operated on a flight from Severomuysk to Ulan-Ude with an en-route stop at Nizhneangarsk.
