During a night time cargo flight the left engine suffered a loss of oil and failed. The crew decided to make a forced landing at Gorki but the propeller could not be feathered as there was no oil pressure. The aircraft rapidly lost height and jettisoning the cargo did not help. The aircraft touched trees on a hill, crashed and broke up.
