The Li-2 was en route between Kharkov and Moscow-Vnukovo when it ran into severe icing. The airplane was flying at a height of 400-600 metres. The resulting buffeting of the tailplane led to a part of the left stabiliser coming off 1 hour and 17 minutes into the flight. The aircraft entered a spin and broke up during the recovery manoeuvre at a height of some 150-200 metres.
