The Li-2 operated on an aerial survey training flight from Tashkent-Yuzhny. After a technical stop at Dzhusaly the aircraft headed for Turkestan, but the crew members were not aware of the strong wind drift which caused the aircraft to stray off course to the left by 72 km. The aircraft impacted the slope of Mount Mynzhilgi (Bessaz) in the Karatau range (Southern Kazakhstan region) at 2,050 metres (126 metres below the summit).
