  • Country of the crash: Ukraine

  • Location of the crash: Kiev region, Makarov district, 1,5 km south of art. roughneck

  • aircraft Brand: An-124-100

Chronology of events:

The crew did more mode of the second and fourth motors. This surge took fourth engine air intake in its fragments hit the nose cone, but it does not turn off, and went to a regime that is close to the small flight gas.

Then the crew has done more mode of operation of the first engine to 58 percent. This caused a vigorously developing sideslip. Cleaning the engine control lever, he was transferred to the SGP regime. Continue the flight with a decrease and an increase in the rate of the amplitude of oscillations of the aircraft.

The commander gave the order to the experimenters, engineers leave the plane with parachutes. The team played only one engineer, who was in the rear of the cab and through the escape hatch left side. Landing on the forest, he was very seriously injured.

The flight occurred at the side of the Gostomel airfield, where the crew panned to make an emergency landing. In view of the absence of indication of the speed of flight, it was determined approximately (450 km / h) with the aid of an An22 aircraft approaching, which began to execute a parallel flight course. This speed was largely more landing. To reduce it, the commander gave the command to release the flaps. In view of the release of only the outer flaps that give the dive moment, if the elevator rises to an altitude of 13 degrees (due to the ratio remaining in the cruising position), the total deviation of the steering wheel by itself was insufficient to align the flight trajectory and land on the Gostomel airfield . The vertical rate of decline has greatly increased. The crew did not stop the decline. There was a collision of the aircraft with trees up to 30-40 m, it fell in 43 km to the west from the Gostomel airfield into the forest, collapsed completely and caught fire. All the experimental engineers and crew members who remained on board were killed.
