The control lever of the left engine was accidentally moved by the commander when controlling the reverse control lever of the second engine. In the absence of proper information and control from the co-pilot for the parameters of the engines and the speed of the aircraft, having an extensive time reserve in order to recognize the situation, the crew did not take the necessary measures to transfer engine No. 1 to "small gas" or turn off the engine. The Commission also expressed the view that the engine control lever could spontaneously move in the conditions of shaking, negative traction during braking, and, probably, a small effort to move the engine control lever.
