The Ilyushin took off from an airport in Azerbaijan carrying paratroopers. Shortly after takeoff the no. 1 engine caught fire. The crew attempted to return to the airport, but the fire had weakened the structure of the wing. First the engine separated, then the airplane crashed in shallow water of the Caspian Sea, some 1500 m offshore.
