The aircraft was test flown from Molotov (now Perm) after an engine change when the flight engineer made a mistake in handling the fuel system, causing both engines to flame out shortly after take-off. The pilot tried to return to the airfield but height was not sufficient and the aircraft collided with the roofs of two wooden houses and crashed at ul. Pigasovskaya between ul. Alekseyevskaya and ul. Svobody on the outskirts of Molotov, damaging a third house.
