Chronology of events:

The crew, seeing the sea underneath themselves, thought that it was on a circuit, although in fact, as a result of the drive's "withdrawal", errors in decreasing the decrease time and increasing the vertical speed in the headwind, the aircraft approached gradually to the mountains, dropping prematurely. Having reached 300 m height, walking in the gaps between the clouds, the commander put in the right bank aircraft for the performance of the standard turn. During the turn, the plane entered the clouds that covered the mountains, and with MK = 240 degrees crashed into the mountain at an altitude of 235 m.
