The aircraft left Chitral at 1530LT bound for Islamabad-Benazir Bhutto Airport, carrying 42 passengers and a crew of five. At 1614LT, while cruising south of Abbottabad, the left engine failed and the pilots were forced to shut it down and to feather the propeller.

The aircraft disintegrated while impacting a mountain slope and all 47 occupants were killed.
