Chronology of events:

The approach to the radio beacons to land on the 06 passed without deviating from the established flight parameters. At an altitude of approximately 5 m, at an speed of 278 km / h, on the leveling, the operation mode of the engines was set to 40 percent of the nominal value and the release of the reversing devices of the first and fourth engines started. The doors of the reverse of the first engine did not come out. The aircraft, in view of the existing asymmetric thrust, began to dodge to the right and after 5 seconds made landing at an speed of 265 km / h. The crew was able to release the interceptors and made the mode of operation of the first and fourth engines up to 86 percent and 80 percent of the nominal, respectively. At the same time, the first engine, due to the failure of the reversing device, formed a direct thrust. The plane, on the run continuing to evade to the right of the axis of the strip, descended from it at a distance of 1300 m from the entrance end. Continuing to move on the ground, he hit the wing of the pumping station building, whose height is 1,3 m. Then the plane, breaking through the fence of the airport fence, rolled out of low trees into the forest. At a distance of 2200 m from the entrance edge of the strip and in 200 m to the right of the axis the plane stopped among the trees growing in a small ravine (on its bottom there is a small pond creek), and caught fire. Six passengers were killed during the evacuation from a burning aircraft. One passenger in the hospital passed away. The plane crash occurred in bad weather at night.
