Chronology of events:

The approach to the landing beacons on the 06 strip passed without deviations from the established flight parameters. At an altitude of approximately 5 m, at a speed of 278 km / h, on leveling, the mode of operation of the engines was set to 40 percent of the nominal value and the release of reversing devices for the first and fourth engines began. The folds of the reverse of the first engine did not come out. The plane, in view of the prevailing asymmetric thrust, began to dodge to the right and, after 5 seconds, performed the landing at 265 speed. The crew was able to release the spoilers and made more operation of the first and fourth engines to 86 percent and 80 percent of nominal, respectively. In this case, the first engine, due to the failure of the reversing device, formed a direct thrust. The plane, while continuing to dodge to the right from the axis of the strip, descended from it at a distance of 1300 m from the entrance end. Continuing to move on the ground, he hit the wing of the building of the pumping station, the height of which was 1,3 m. Then the plane, breaking through the fence of the airport fence, rolled out of low trees into the forest. At a distance of 2200 m from the entrance end of the strip and in 200 m to the right of the axis, the plane made a stop among the trees growing in a small ravine (a small pond is located on its bottom) and caught fire. Six passengers died during the evacuation of a burning aircraft. One passenger died in hospital. The crash occurred in bad weather at night.
