The Il-18 operated on a flight from Santo Domingo (SDQ) to Havana with an intermediate stop at Puerto Plata. On approach the airliner flew into the 2500-ft high Pico Isabel de Torres.
The crew carried out a VOR approach to runway 26 at Puerto Plata Airport before breaking off and making a circling visual approach to runway 08. Last contact with the flight was when the pilot reported on the base leg of the approach at 9nm (16,7 km). The aircraft apparently hit the hill shortly after turning onto final approach. The maximum distance for a circling approach is said to have been 4nm.
