Due to low visibility conditions and a high number of aircraft bound for Moscow, the C-47 was put in a holding pattern for two hours. At 18:27 the crew started the approach in a thick fog. Some 300 metres after passing the landing sign "T", the crew decided to go around. The airplane was flying at a height of 10-15 m at the time. Engine power was increased sharply. The plane went into a steep climb, lost speed and impacted the ground about 600 m from the landing "T".
