Chronology of events:

According to eyewitness testimony, the fog was at the scene and the visibility was no more than 500 m. The lack of visual guidance in the conditions of dense fog did not give the crew the opportunity to recognize the timely situation and to parry the landing with a helm. The elevator was deflected only for 4 seconds before colliding with obstacles at an altitude of about 120 m. The vertical speed dropped to 5-7 m / s, but the overload was insufficient to pull the plane out of the decline that was still going on. At an altitude of 38 m in relation to the aerodrome level with a positive pitch angle and the engines that were operating on takeoff the aircraft crashed into trees of the forest belt at a speed of about 405 km / h. There was a separation of the right PEC. After 75 m the plane, having a small right roll touched the ground with the tail of the fuselage and the propeller of the right engine. Even after 75 m at a distance of 5 km from the strip and in 1180 m to the left of the axis, it crashed into the trees of the second forest belt and collapsed completely. The flight duration was 1 min 40 sec.
