The An-26 departed Sukhumi in a cargo flight to Krasnovodsk. The airplane was loaded with a ton of mandarins. An intermediate stop was made at Rostov (ROV) where new-year fir trees were loaded. The takeoff weight was above the maximum allowed. The airplane took off in conditions of thick fog.
When the flaps were retracted on climbout, the aircraft descended during some 7-8 seconds with a vertical descent rate of up to 17 m/s. The crew were able to pull up but it was too late. The airplane contacted pine trees on a small hill, crashed and burned.
