Immediately after takeoff the aircraft stalled, banked right at an altitude of about 50 m, and crashed almost inverted. A post impact fire erupted. Some high-ranking navy officials were aboard, returning to Vladivostok after an exercise in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg).

Probable Cause:

The accident was caused by the wrong seating of the passengers and improperly secured cargo which began to shift after takeoff. This caused the center of gravity to move beyond the certfied limits.
