Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The four-engined Antonov cargo plane flying from Yerevan to Turkmanbashi at 9100 m, had to divert to Baku due to fuel shortage.
Approaching Baku, ATC realized that the An-12 was lined up with a runway under construction parallel to the runway is use, runway 35. After a go around the aircraft was 6 km out when all engines quit due to fuel shortage. The aircraft consequently crash-landed on a rocky surface.

It appeared that on the ground at Yerevan already 900 kg of fuel had been consumed during five unsuccessful attempts at starting one of the engines. En route the crew failed to monitor fuel consumption in relation to the distance flown. The captain decided too late to divert to Baku and failed to inform ATC about the fact that he was low on fuel. Poor crew coordination then caused the plane to line up to the wrong runway. During the go around the crew did not raise the landing gear, leading to an increase in the fuel consumption.
