When the crew reported on readiness for landing, the dispatcher authorized landing. At the distance of 1000 m from the inlet end of the strip the aircraft was on a glide path and on the course. Then it fell lower than the glide path and touched the tops of birches with the height of 20 m in the territory of the military depots of rocket and artillery armament. Then the plane hit the roof of a metal hangar with four-axle MAZ543 wheeled tractors, which were inside. The hangar was located at 850 m from the end of the 14 strip. Continuing to decline, the landing gear of the chassis touched units of equipment from the sets of regimental workshops PM270M, which were in an open parking lot (they were intended for repair of artillery weapons in the field) on the Zil131 chassis.
