Crash-landed in a field in poor weather conditions. The Head of the ground forces of the Revolutionary Guard, Ahmad Kazemi, was among those killed in the crash. Reports indicate that the crew did not get three greens after selecting the gear down while on approach to Orumiyeh Airport. A flypast was done so the control tower could observe the status of the landing gear. While circling the airplane suffered a double engine flame-out, reportedly as a result of engine icing. An emergency landing was attempted in a field, but the Falcon crashed.
