The Li-2 operated on a cargo flight from Magadan to Pevek via Seymchan, Zyryanka and Nizhniye Kresty (now Cherski) and Bilibino. The flight crew attempted to take off from a badly prepared snow-covered runway at Zyryanka Airport during snowfall at night.
The aircraft lifted off at low speed and with a high angle of attack, fell back to the ground and bounced several times. The left wing touched the ground damaging the aileron, and the aircraft came down in a snow-covered field 440 metres behind the runway threshold and 970 metres to the left of its extended centre-line and broke up.
