Chronology of events:

Producing customized flight crew to transport missiles "air-air" aircraft from the airfield Fighter Regiment in Moscow, in order to carry out maintenance work at the factory. The commander served in this type of aircraft first solo flight. In 35 minute flight at night on the echelon held spontaneous off the autopilot, which was accompanied by an audible alarm. The crew found and turned off automatic traction.

On echelon m 7500 1 hour later 43 minute flight took off again autopilot is not accompanied by a sound alarm. Create an emergency there was no evidence the crew of 40 seconds. At this time, the bank began to develop in the future due to the transition of the aircraft in a deep spiral mode with the rapid acceleration of the restrictions that were set to destroy and velocity head on off-design loads in flight. The fuselage fell into the swamp and leave the funnel, which reached a depth of 7 m.

The findings, which investigated plane crash

Aviation accident occurred as a result of the rudders off the autopilot, unnoticed by the crew during the flight at flight level and in view of non-intervention in 40 sek.v for control of the aircraft, causing the plane shift mode deep spiral with the rapid acceleration of the restrictions that were set by the destruction and the velocity head from the off-design loads in flight.

Possible reasons for disabling autopilot steering wheels were:

- Unintentional pressing the autopilot disconnect rudders one of the crew members;

- Denial of circuits autopilot control of one of the switches.

Long delay action against pilots in control of the aircraft after switching off the autopilot to determine a combination of adverse factors:

- lack of control over the flight characteristics due to poor interaction in the crew;

- Failure on the aircraft AN-32 safety requirements for ensuring a reliable variable speed alarm turned off the autopilot and limiting banks that the crew did not give timely information on the development of the particular situation.
