Chronology of events:

The plane transported the cargo 12515 kg of coins, which were struck at the coin Petersburg yard. The airport controller Nalchik gave information about the actual weather, which did not include data on possible icing in the clouds. The crew began approaching the landing. PIC engines and aircraft were not included until the fourth turn, when the entrance directly into the cloud, the crew switched on the heating of VNA engines. The heating of the wing did not start. It was not possible to establish whether the heating of the tail unit was switched on, but it was also not likely to be included. At a distance of 16 km from the strip flaps deflected to 15 degrees. After entering the glide path at a distance of 8 km, the crew began to release the flaps to 35 degrees, ending in 31 seconds before collision with the ground. Due to the unbalance caused by the release of flaps, the aircraft slightly deviated (up to 20 m) higher than the glide path. At a distance of 6 km for 15 seconds before the event at an speed of 260 km / h, the crew made more engine operation mode to save the estimated flight speed. The deviation upward from the glide path became larger to 40 m. To return to the glide path, the elevator rudder deviated from the balanced position + 1 degrees for 3 seconds to + 5 degree. During 1,5 seconds in 7,5 seconds Before the crash the elevator sloped spontaneously from + 5 degrees to + 13 degrees, and then to the structural stop 15 grad and was in this position about 1 sec. The aircraft went into a steep dive from a height of 320 m (trajectory 50-55 grad). For 4 seconds before the crash, the crew gave the steering wheel to the helm of the lower end position. In 1 seconds Before the disaster, he moved to the zero position. For the withdrawal of the height margin, e was sufficient and at a vertical speed of 90 m / s at a speed of 414 km / h the aircraft in a plowed field collided with the ground at 4,6 km from the strip, caught fire and collapsed.
