Aircraft flight cycles:
The aircraft was completing a cargo flight from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to Novosibirsk with intermediate stops in Okha and Chita, carrying a load consisting of three Toyota vehicles and boxes of frozen fish. While completing a turn to join the approach path, one engine failed. The crew continued the approach when, on short final, the second engine failed as well. The aircraft lost height and crashed 1,657 metres short of runway. A passenger was seriously injured while 13 other occupants were killed. Few hours later, the only survivor died from his injuries.
Double engine failure on approach caused by a fuel exhaustion. At the time of the accident, the total weight of the aircraft was 5 tons above the max landing weight.
