The Ilyushin 76TD cargo plane was chartered to fly communications equipment for coalition forces from Bahrain to Kabul and U.S. military's air base at Bagram. The flight was supposed to continue to Sharjah after that.
Flight RPK 1102 took off from Kabul about 05:20 UTC. It was in contact with Kabul Tower (Local Controller) till it changed frequency to Bagram Radar Controller at 05:22. Because of other traffic at Bagram, the flight was told to hold at 10,000 feet, 10 NM southwest of Bagram.
The crew probably started a descent at approximately 05:23:36 UTC in order to establish more reliable visual contact with the ground. The airplane then impacted a mountain at 6954 feet (2120 m), 28.6 km from Kabul.

According to Bagram Tower the weather conditions at Kabul at 05:22 were: wind calm, visibility 5000 m, haze, clouds at 1200 feet (400 m), temperature 8, QNH 1021.
