The aircraft, operated by the Soviet Border Guards, was damaged beyond repair in a hard landing accident on the ice strip of Nagurskoye on Alexandra Land, Franz Josef Land archipelago. The aircraft was caught by a wind-shear on final approach, came down very hard and broke up.
As a repair of the aircraft at that remote location was not viable the aircraft was cannibalised and abandoned.
