Chronology of events:

The crew made a charter flight Pardubice - Vnukovo. In this composition the crew made flight for the first time. The commission notes that during the flight to Pardubice, the KBC allowed rough treatment to the second pilot, with a huge amount of obscene language, which caused quite a tense atmosphere and nervousness in the cockpit. During the landing in Pardubice, at an increased speed, errors in the piloting technique of the commander led to the separation of the aircraft from the strip and to the next landing with great overload. At the same time, the commander, without analyzing the situation, accused the entire crew member, apparently, of the flight engineer, of everything. The consequence of this behavior of the commander was the emotional tense situation in the crew and there was, possibly, a conflict situation. This fact, apparently, contributed to the lack of normal interaction between crew members during the return flight to Vnukovo.

The flight from Pardubice carried out without passengers and cargo on board. The approach was carried out on the runway-19 (length - 3060 m) Vnukovo airport. Active piloting carried FAC.

During preplant preparation KBC continued to communicate with a second pilot to use a rough profanity that led to nervousness in the crew. Later the crew was erroneously introduced other (other than those specified dispatcher) scheme arrival in onboard computer system. When an error is detected the need to adjust the scheme call again caused an increase in tension in the cockpit.

Further, the situation in the cabin remained quite tense. The commander, afraid not to have time to release in the landing position flaps, constantly nervous and copilot hurry. These actions provoked the fact that the co-pilot had acted in a state of haste, even allowing for the conduct of the dispatcher radio communication error.

The Commission notes that during the flight the commander was unable to organize properly the work of the crew, management crew was at a low level, which, together with the above listed deficiencies in training and psychological stress situation, which was to create a style of communication commander predetermined erroneous actions emergency flight crew and its inability to address the situation that has developed after the increase in the direct thrust and non-reversible device.
