Chronology of events:

The crew performed a commercial airline to transport cargo consisted mainly of watermelons. Unknown exact weight of the load, but it is estimated that excess weight was nibolshego takeoff 15500-25500 kg. Knowing the significant overload, the crew of flight delayed on 5 hours to expect a decrease in outside air temperature after sunset.

Take-off was carried out at an air temperature of + 37 ° C with a side-tail wind at night in the PMU. After 73 seconds from the takeoff, the aircraft took off at an speed of 235 km / h and shifted to climb. At an altitude of approximately 150 m (Vpr = 365 km / h), cleaning in the 5 flaps was started. At the end of the flaps cleaning at an altitude of 160 m (Vpr = 400 km / h), the aircraft began a descent, having a vertical speed of 1,6 m / s, the SOS operation occurred. After 1 a second from the activation of the PSTN, the elevator slid abruptly to 3,5 degrees for 3 seconds to dive, and after two seconds from reaching an overload of 0,7 units - abruptly for kabrirovanie with more significant subsequent shifts. The aircraft eventually moved from climb to descent with a vertical speed of 10 ... 12 m / s and after 140 seconds from the detachment at speed 485 km / h with the water surface of the Persian Gulf collided in 16 km from the airport and at 800 m from the shore, sank and Collapsed.

Description of the identified causes AP

The Commission concluded that at the time of return "by itself" the wheel to balance the aircraft at the end of retracting the flaps for the crew worked SSOS surprisingly, this provoked mental impairment commander who has continued to decline at a dive elevator. Reduction of psycho-emotional stability commander was due to his fear of taking off to perform at significantly overloaded aircraft, as well as a long delay departure.

The findings, which investigated plane crash

The reason for the catastrophe: the decision to perform a flight commander at the overloaded aircraft and to take off in a high temperature ambient air with the wind that caused the drawdown of the aircraft at the time of completion of the cleaning flap and the transition to the decline in the future due to improper manipulation with the controls.
