The cause of the incident was unintentional exit of the crew in the performance of an emergency reduction of the speed of the aircraft, which is topped by 110 km / h the highest speed indicator when using the aircraft (more than the estimated marginal rate). This caused the deformation of the aircraft, the appearance of all the axes of the low-frequency vibrations of the aircraft, an increase of alternating congestion that exceeded safety margins. As a result, the destruction of the aircraft took place in the air is followed by a collision with the ground.

The main factors that contribute to the accident were:
