Antonov 24 CCCP-46653 operated on a domestic passenger flight from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk Airport (UUS) to Blagoveshchensk Airport (BQS) via Komsomol'sk-na-Amure Airport (KXK). The flight had departed Komsomol'sk-na-Amure at 07:56 and was en route to Blagoveshchensk at FL170 when it collided in mid air with a Soviet Air Force Tupolev 16K (msn 6203106).
The Antonov disintegrated and crashed. One passenger, 20 year old Larissa Savizkaja survived the crash and was found in a forest 3 days later. The Tupolev, which acted as a support aircraft for two military weather research planes, also crashed.

Probable Cause:

The collision was said to have been caused by poor coordination between the civilian and military air traffic controllers.
