The findings, which investigated plane crash

The exact cause of the accident was not established due to the death of the crew, the complete destruction of the aircraft, and insufficient information from the MSRP-12, on which one-time commands about the response of the fire extinguishing systems, the artificial horizon failure, switching to the backup power bus, the vane pump, and the autopilot were not registered. 

The most likely cause of the catastrophe: the loss of spatial orientation of the crew due to the refusal of artificial horizon AGGB2. 

The plane shape of the periodic service was held at the base point, which does not have a complete set of technological and special equipment.
