The Li-2 operated on a cargo flight from Takhtamygda to Kyzyl-Syr. When the left engine failed, the crew decided to divert to Aldan. During approach to Aldan the landing gear failed to lower and the crew decided to abort the approach. A steep left turn was flown in order to avoid colliding with the mountain beyond the runway, but the aircraft stalled over its left wing and crashed from a height of some 15-20 metres.
