Because they failed to adhere to pre-flight checklists, the pilots of this Lisunov erroneously selected an almost empty tank to supply fuel to the power system; as a consequence, both engines quitted very shortly after takeoff as they could not get enough fuel. Inappropriately handling the emergency, the pilots put the Li-2 into stall condition at a low altitude and crash-landed on the bank of Hun River, which resulted in the hull loss of the aircraft and injured seven people on board.
The aircraft operated on a flight to Chifeng Xijiao Airport.
