The Ilyushin freighter, loaded with clothes and convenience goods, departed Taiyuan, China at 05:50 for a cargo flight to Riga, Latvia. Intermediate stops were planned at Urumqi and Baku, Azerbaijan. The airplane touched down at Urumqi at 09:10, taxied to the apron where it was refueled. At 10:48 the flight took off from Urumqi for the next leg to Baku. Some two minutes after takeoff the plane apparently descended, crashing nose-first into a farm.
