Chronology of events:

Indicated airspeed aircraft etc. landing snzilas to 270-275 km / h.

After identifying the car headlights at the band crew began to perform maneuvers to approach the right circle for landing. Piloting the performance of the circling performed visually, without having control of the instrument, which is contrary to the requirements of the Flight Manual.

The crew made a way out of the final turn in the radial distance 4-4,5 km strip on the course 20-25 degrees (which corresponds to the final course, which was reported lidirovschikom before departure, but did not correspond to the actual, 54 degree). The height at the time was 200 m, speed 280-285 km / h.

When flying on a glide path, the flight commander did not withstand the flight parameters provided for by the RLE, primarily vertical and instrument speeds. Moving with the constant course for 30 sec, the crew began a visual search for the band, the engine mode decreased by PCM to 30 kg /, which caused the speed to fall. The commander for 36 seconds before landing saw landmarks similar to the light of car headlamps on the lane, and commanded about the flap pre-release to 25 degrees, at the same time the right turn, with a roll of up to 20 degrees, at which the engine mode decreased by PCM to 15-18 Kg / cm2. Because of this, the speed at the time of exit from the turn decreased to 260 km / h.

After the release of the aircraft on course 52-55 ° (at an altitude of 180 m distance of about 2 km from touchdown), the crew began to decline with the vertical speed 8 m / s. Because of the complete lack of cooperation in the crew commander of the team dovypuska flaps had not been made.

With a further decrease in the operating mode of PCM engines uvelichli to 35-40 kg / cm., Which caused growth to 300 km / h airspeed. Mode of operation of engines at an altitude of 60 0 m decreased to degrees UPRT (PCM on 2-4 kg / cm.).

Align began at approximately 20 m, at a vertical speed of no less than 5-7 m / s, and it was not very energetic (5 seconds for the elevator strayed no more than on 4-5 degrees up).

The landing took place at a distance of 950-1000 meters from the entrance end of the strip at a speed of 295-300 km / h, with a vertical speed of no less than 5 m / s. and pitch angle 2-3 degree. Along with the landing controls both engines were transferred briefly to a position that is close to the takeoff, but almost simultaneously cleared to 0 UPRT degrees, indicating that the attempt missed, which was made by one of the crew members.

The remaining length of the strip is not enough for the aircraft to a complete stop. After a 500-550 m run at the speed of 280 km / h the plane skidded off the border strip and the motion on the ground began to crumble. After a 100-150 m from the exit from the strip in a collision with an obstacle took the destruction of the nose landing gear, then the plane fell on the nose of the fuselage.

Stop the plane took over 750-800 m from the place of landing, at a distance of 250 m from the output end of the strip and in 20 meters to the right of the center line. At the last stage of the movement on the ground took the destruction of the fuselage with and nosing subsequently further destruction.
