The aircraft operated on a cargo flight from Taskhent to Ashkhabad at night in support of the Central Asian Military District. The flight crew was told that their destination airport would be lit. However, this was not the case. The flight crew failed to locate the airport and flew to the north-west. Shortly after midnight the pilot attempted a forced landing at Kizyl-Arvat in the Krasnovodsk District of Turkmenistan, but the aircraft struck a hill at a height of 70 metres.
