Nine minutes after takeoff from Gilgit Airport, while flying in poor weather conditions, the aircraft struck the slope of a mountain located near Bunji, about 40 km southeast of Gilgit. The wreckage was found in an isolated area few hours later and all 54 occupants were killed.
For unknown reasons, the crew failed to follow the correct route after departure and the aircraft's altitude was insufficient.
