Chronology of events:

The flight mechanic saw a red burning lamp on the approach landing and shouted, giving way to panic: "In the second round, the chassis did not reach!".

The commander of the crew, also giving way to panic, left on one engine for a second round from an altitude of 1 m. Due to the depleted mixture depletion mode, the right engine overheated.
