Chronology of events:

The plane transported a load of 12515 kg of coins, which were minted at the Mint of Petersburg. The airport dispatcher Nalchik gave information about the actual weather, which did not include data on possible icing in the clouds. The crew began landing. The PIC of the engines and the aircraft were not turned on until the fourth turn was performed, when at the entrance directly to the clouds the crew switched on the heaters of the VNA engines. Wing heating is not included. It was not possible to establish whether the tail feathers were turned on, but with a high degree of probability it was also not included. At a distance of 16 km from the strip, the flaps deviated by 15 degrees. After entering the glide path at a distance of 8 km, the crew began to release flaps to 35 degrees, which ended 31 seconds before the collision with the ground. Due to the imbalance caused by the release of flaps, the aircraft slightly (up to 20 m) deviated higher than the glide path. At a distance of 6 km for 15 seconds before the event at a speed of 260 km / h, the crew made more engines to save the estimated flight speed. The deviation up from the glide path became larger up to 40 m. To return to the glide path, the elevator deflected from the balanced position + 1 hail during 3 seconds to + 5 hail. For 1,5 seconds for 7,5 seconds. before the crash, the elevator spontaneously deviated from + 5 degrees to + 13 degrees, and then to the 15 constructive stop degrees and was in this position for about 1 seconds. The plane went into a steep dive mode from a height of 320 m (trajectory 50-55 hail). For 4 seconds before the crash, the crew began to pull the elevator out of the lower end position by returning to the steering wheel. For 1 seconds before the disaster, he moved to the zero position. To derive a reserve of height e, the plane with a vertical speed of 90 m / s at a speed of 414 km / h on a plowed field collided with the ground in 4,6 km from the lane, caught fire and collapsed.
