The Il-76 transport plane departed Novosibirsk on a cargo flight to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia. It carried a cargo meat and detergent powder. On departure the takeoff weight was 17 tons over the maximum takeoff weight. En route the crew programmed the navigation system using the wrong coordinates for a waypoint (153° 20 'N instead of 53° 20' N). ATC then instructed the crew to descend without being visible on radar. It descended 23 km to the right of the intended track over mountainous terrain. The airplane descended through clouds to an altitude of 900 m and flew into the side of a mountain, 300 m below the summit.
