Chronology of events:

The flight occurred at night in the SMU. After 40 minutes of flight, the crew informed of the return to Luanda airport due to a failure at the level of two engines. The height at the time of communication was approximately 2000-3000 m. The aircraft continued to decrease from an altitude of 1200 m, although it could produce a horizontal flight, respectively, with performance characteristics. The crew informed about the retention of the train 1200 m, but, the aircraft actually continued the decline. Judging by the inter-cabin talks that happened to be broadcast on the air, it is possible to conclude that the pilots recorded a decrease in the aircraft. The fact that the aircraft could not maintain a horizontal flight was due, probably, to either the reduced engine power due to repairs, or the excess of the flight mass. The airplane decreased to 900 m with 1000 m and started to evade to the left. At an altitude of 900 m for 80 km to Luanda, the crew again reported that the flight was performed on two engines. At a speed of 350 km / h at a height of 800 m, the flaps were released to the position of 25 degrees. The aircraft continued its decline at a vertical speed of 3 m / s before colliding with the ground. The aircraft was found to be completely destroyed and burnt. The reason for the failure of the first and third engines is not installed in place. Probable cause could be a clash during take-off with a flock of birds.
