Chronology of events:

At the height of the dial reacted 60 m height on the radio altimeter. For 3 seconds crew response to it is not followed. This can be explained by impaired concentration, which was caused by alcohol intoxication. Fast reaction of the crew, apparently, have made it possible to prevent collision with obstacles.

In 12: 18: 50,5 crew apparently saw on the flight path obstacle deflection of the elevator sharply increased pitch to pitch and moved to the take-off throttle mode both engines. But these actions have not been able to prevent the collision on a steep mountain slope with trees. Plane on the flight speed of about 250 km / h touched on the spur of the eastern slope of the mountain tops of the trees at a height of about 330 m from the band level (located in 17 m above sea level).

As a result, the engines and propellers of the aircraft were damaged, which led to an almost simultaneous operation of an automatic engine shutdown system and the flinting of propellers. The reason for stopping the engines in flight was a stall in the combustion chamber of the flame engines due to simultaneous input of a huge amount of pulp to the engine input, which caused a significant decrease in the area of ​​the VNA passage section and, as a result, a sharp decrease in the calculated air intake for a stable gas dynamic process in the combustion chamber. As the pitch increased, the engines disengaged.

Changes in altitude almost did not happen. The aircraft flew at a significant pitching the top of the mountains and located on the opposite slope. Aircraft movement with the pitch angle without engine power caused a sharp drop in speeds of up to 130-135 km / h and stall the aircraft.

After approximately 450 m from the place of the first contact plane tree at 216 m with a large right bank began to "skaschivat" trees 4-7 m tall with MK = 47 ° at a distance of 50 m and stopped in the forest destroyed on the hillside slope of about 30 °, on mark m 190 turned to the side, which is opposite to the direction of motion. The spread of the wreckage was 50h18 m. Do not fire occurred. Plane crash took place at 12: 20 local time, approximately 10,7 km from the KTA azimuth 219 ° (58 ° 59'04 "school, 159 ° 48'20" VD).
