Chronology of events:

The length of the strip of the airport Turin in view of the repair work was reduced from 3300 to 2350 m (the entrance end at 950 m is further transferred), which the crew knew about. Even in view of the repair work, the course-glissad system worked only in the regime of the lighthouse lighthouse. Weather conditions could be considered bad, but they still exceeded the minimum of the airport - visibility on the strip - 1500 m in conditions of little rain and low clouds. In the cockpit there were two commanders, one of whom was acting as a co-pilot. The plane left the clouds before the end of the strip, than the crew expected, and at a height that was more than calculated. Believing that the remainder of the strip for safe landing is not enough, the co-pilot began to insist on a missed approach when the commander decided to land. The plane flew over the strip with a decrease. The second pilot finally convinced the commander and at the moment when there was no more than a meter between the surface of the strip and the wheels of the chassis, the commander began to go into the second round. But in view of the design flaws in the engine management system and the commander's errors in the scheme of actions to put the engines on a mode, only one engine for take-off mode came out. The aircraft could not gain altitude. Approximately 1 km from the strip, at an altitude of 25 m, it touched trees above the aerodrome level. Then he touched the roof of a two-story house in the town of San Francesco al Campo, fell to the ground, collided with the farm building with his nose and caught fire. The plane to Turin was driven to take several Ferrari cars and to deliver them to Brunei.

The aircraft was in the possession of "Ajax" airline but operated by "Aeroflot"
