The crew was engaged in a patrol flight (fire survey) from Pobeda when the engine failed in flight due to low oil pressure. The crew attempted an emergency landing on the road from Komsomolsk-on-Amur to Elban, near Padali (58 km from Komsomolsk). The aircraft suffered damage to the left main gear and the left lower wing and was damaged beyond repair. All three occupants escaped uninjured.
