Nevertheless, a few minutes after the departure, the airliner disappeared from the air traffic controllers' radars, and the aircraft crew stopped communicating.



Originally, there were reports that the aircraft only disappeared from the radar, as confirmed by representatives of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, however, later there were reports that the airliner had crashed on the territory of the Ramensky district, not far from the settlements of Argunovo and Stepanovskoye.

The rescuers who headed to the place of the tragedy announced that bodies of victims of the plane crash were found at the crash site, while the scatter of the wreckage of the aircraft is quite large, while the victims among people on earth were avoided.

Preliminary versions of the An-148 plane crash in the Moscow region


Experts working on the spot crash officially do not comment on the causes and circumstances of the tragedy, however, experts said that mainly three main versions of the incident should be considered: engine malfunction, pilot error and technical malfunction of the control system.


Malfunction of the An-148 engine


Despite the fact that the causes of the tragedy in the Ramensky district are not officially commented, the plane crash witness stated that at the time of the crash, one of the engines of the passenger aircraft was burning, which most likely became the main circumstance of the crash. Nevertheless, it is important to take into account the fact that the An-148 airplane can continue its flight on one engine, which in turn puts this version in doubt.



Nevertheless, taking into account the online scoreboard data, the Saratov Airlines airplane flew from the capital's Domodedovo airport with a delay of 22 minutes (the actual departure time of 14 hours is 22 minutes - note ed.), Which may well mean, that before departure, the crew of the aircraft noticed a malfunction, however, representatives of the carrier still do not comment on the delay of the flight.


Malfunction of the An-148 aircraft control system



One of the considered versions of the incident is also the technical malfunction of the control system, and although there is no official confirmation, experts believe that it is also important to take into account such circumstances during the air crash investigation, because the aircraft's icy fuselage (at the time of departure the temperature was below the zero mark - Ed.), Could lead to a violation of aircraft control.


Pilot error



Experts do not rule out that the reason for the crash of the An-148 passenger airliner with the 71 man on board the territory of the Ramensky district could be a pilot error, since at the time of the voyage, there was a heavy snowfall, which seriously hampered visibility.


Explosion on board


Despite the fact that the probability of an explosion on board an An-148 passenger plane is considered to be extremely small, experts believe that it should not be completely denied, especially if one takes into account the large separation of the wreckage of the crashed aircraft, while , it can be either a terrorist act or an explosion connected with a technical malfunction.
