Aeroflot Friday March 6, 1987
The cargo plane struck the side of a mountain while setting up for the approach. The ATC didn't monitor the plane for at least 2 minutes after observing the plane taking a wrong course. When the ATC tried to contact the plane to tell them of the mistake the crew never responded because communications in the vicinity of the mountain blocked the signal.
