Chronology of events:

The maximum vertical speed of descent at the distance 150 to the end of the strip was 7 m / s, and the lowest value of the pitch angle is 4-5 degrees for diving. RLE Tu-154 at the same time prohibits all vertical maneuvers after the passage of the track and advises against changing the engine speed more than 5 percent during the approach. A significant re-balancing of the aircraft significantly reduced the likelihood of its stabilization at the final approach segment, this could also be facilitated by the impact on the visual assessment of the position of the aircraft by rain shower pilots. The crew for 2,5 seconds from touching at an altitude of about 20 m from the ground at a vertical descent rate of 7 m / s, realizing the danger of rough landing, completely took the helm "on itself" (the elevator slid to the stop for kabirirovaniy-29 °) almost simultaneously with the growth Mode of operation of the engines to the takeoff mode (by the time of contact, the revolutions increased to 75 percent for HPC). There was a positive increase in vertical overload, the pitch angle increased by 8 degrees with an angular pitch rate to 2,2 degrees per second.

At an airspeed of 250 km / h in 13: 06: 13, the aircraft landed on the PKB pylon, which has a backward slope of 3 degrees almost without heel, with a course of 100 degrees, with a slight (approximately 1 degree) negative pitch angle with respect to the PKB Speed ​​of decrease 7 m / s. The first touch took place in front of the chassis (for 6,3 m to the band), then the main chassis supports (for 9,9-13,2 m to the band). In a rough landing, the vertical overload was not less than 4,5 units, which is greater than the value of the destructive load. The fuselage was destroyed in the area of ​​49-53 frames in its upper part. Chassis broke. Destruction in the future of the aircraft took place under the influence of unrealistic loads when moving it along a concrete strip and along the ground. The fuselage broke into three parts. The tail part on the strip stopped to the right, deployed in the direction of the flight. The central part of the fuselage with the center wing and the partially separated pilot cabin stopped at 80 on the left of the strip on the ground, also with a right turn. There was no fire. 13 passengers, including 2 children, were killed. The commander and 37 passengers were seriously injured.
