Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight from Warsaw, the crew started the approach to Szczecin-Goleniów Airport by night and relative good weather conditions. On final, the airplane lost height, struck trees and crashed in flames in a wooded area located few dozen meters short of runway threshold. The aircraft was totally destroyed and all 18 occupants were killed, among them the Polish Minister of the Interior Wiesław Ociepka and the Czechoslovak Minister of the Interior Radko Kaska. Accompanied by a delegation of their respective ministry, they were en route to Szczecin to visit sea port installations.

Probable cause:
It was determined that the accident was caused by turbulences created at low altitude by the confrontation of two hot and cold air fronts, a phenomenon which resulted in a sudden loss of altitude that the pilots could not control. An accumulation of frost on all surfaces also contributed to the accident.
