The crew was completing a delivery flight from Russia to India. The aircraft departed Muscat-Seeb Airport at 1328LT bound for Jamnagar, Gujarat. While in cruising altitude, the aircraft disappeared from radar screens and the crew did not send any distress message. SAR operations were initiated but eventually abandoned few days later as no trace of the airplane was found. It is believed that it crashed in the Oman Sea about 450 km west of the Indian coast of Gujarat State.
