An airplane in 12: 56: 40 with a course of 150 degrees landed on a state farm field that was covered with deep snow, in 49 km from Koltsovo Airport with azimuth of 285 degrees. Landing is made without a roll, with a pitch angle of at least 1,5 degrees, a trajectory inclination of at least 3,5 degrees, with a stabilizer in the flight position (1,5 degrees), retracted flaps, released chassis. After the aircraft touched the ground, the landing gear began to collapse. After the 148 m run, the plane separated and a second touch took place after the 104 and both landing gear and the left wing. After 44, the plane was separated for the second time from the ground. The third landing took place after 180 m. The plane in this place lost the right wing plane and the right landing gear nacelle, colliding with the irrigation system. After the separation of the right wing under the influence of the power of aerodynamics of the left wing, the plane "on its back" turned over with the separation of the stabilizer and the keel.
