The Li-2 operated on a flight from Moscow to Omsk with stops at Gorky, Izhevsk and Sverdlovsk. The flight took off from Izhevsk at 00:20 Moscow time. Onboard there were three crew members, 2 passengers, 681 kg of mail and 676 kg of cargo.
The descent to Sverdlovsk was initiated at 02:00 Moscow time (04:00 local time). During the approach the aircraft was 157 m to the right of the extended centreline of the runway and below the published descent profile.
At 250m altitude both engines lost power because the right-hand fuel tank had run dry. While the flight crew switched to the left-hand fuel tank and restarted the engines, more altitude was lost until the aircraft struck trees and crashed.
