The Il-12P operated on a domestic flight from Khabarovsk to Magadan with en route stops at Nikolayevsk-na-Amure and Seymchan, Russia.
The aircraft took off with moist snow on the airframe which had accumulated during taxiing and engine tests. It became airborne late and at a low speed. The resulting vibrations tempted the flight engineer to overfuel the left engine, causing it to lose power.
The aircraft lost altitude, impacted the ground and broke up. A fire erupted.
