Crew attempted an emergency landing on the Filippi glacier 240 km west of Ice Station Mirny (at S66.833 E88.00) in white-out conditions, but the aircraft crashed into the surface of the glacier and was completely destroyed. All 5 crew and the sole passenger (an aircraft mechanic) were killed. Wreck found some days later.
Probable cause:
Fuel exhaustion due to strong head wind.
