Chronology of events:

In the process approach in Irkutsk, the crew made a performance drop during the third turn is less acceptable to 10-15 km / h. Autopilot, which is included in the maintenance mode is high, with an increase in speed to do more pitch, causing an even greater loss of speed.

After revealing a dangerous situation, the crew added a mode to the engines, turned the steering wheel away from themselves and to the left, which caused a rapid increase in vertical speed and an increase in left bank. Losing the spatial orientation, the commander tried to pull the plane out of the bank, but with his actions only increased his inclination. After triggering the altimeter sensor, which was set to the lowest altitude of this approach phase, the pilot abruptly took over the helm, the elevator rudder deflected to -NNUMX degrees for kapping (almost to the stop). Such a significant and intensive deflection of the elevator height caused an increase in the normal overload to 24 units, pitch angle to 2 degrees, stalling in a spin, and aircraft retreat to the overcritical angles of attack.

The process flow to particular situation was catastrophic transient (15 seconds). Short-term "returns" pilots "from themselves" the wheel and increase engine power to the takeoff did not give the desired result: not provided him with a way out of a stable regime of flat spin. The decline in this mode, the aircraft passed with vertical speeds of up to 100 m / sec., The efforts of the crew to get out of the corkscrew and reduce aircraft were unsuccessful because of the height deficit.

The aircraft collided with a forest glade, burned, destroyed. All those on board were killed in the collision.
