Chronology of events:
The crew performed a cargo flight to transport aircraft parts for the Irkutsk aircraft plant. The night approach was carried out in accordance with the radio beacon landing system with control according to the landing radar on runway 14 in the following actual weather: clouds with a height of 100 m 5 octane, visibility 4700 m, wind 1 m / s 260 °, haze. When the crew reported their readiness for landing, the controller cleared the landing. At a distance of 1000 m from the entrance end of the runway, the plane was on the glide path and on the course. Then it dropped lower than the glide path beam and touched the tops of birches 20 m high on the territory of military depots for missile and artillery weapons. Then the plane hit the roof of a metal hangar with MAZ543 four-axle wheeled tractors inside. The hangar was located 850 m from the end of runway 14. Continuing to descend, the aircraft with landing gear struck units of equipment from the PM270M regimental workshop sets, which were in an open parking lot (they were intended for repairing artillery weapons in the field) on the Zil131 chassis. Then there was a frontal impact on the hangar, trailers and PM270M vehicles that were inside it. Having partially destroyed this and the hangar, which was behind it in the direction of travel, the aircraft finally stopped at a distance of approximately 700 m from the runway end, with both wing planes hitting the walls of two more hangars.
