Chronology of events:

As a result of a long takeoff, the aircraft took off with a progressive roll and an increase in the angle of attack before the kabrirovaniya. Passed to the decline at an altitude of 45 m, crashed in 400 m from the end of the strip and caught fire. The screw of the second engine immediately after detachment due to a malfunction in the electronic control unit passed spontaneously into the fouling mode, due to which the output to the stalling mode took place. The time deficit does not give the crew the opportunity to assess the type and consequences of failure. The aircraft was required to perform a series of five flights, the duration of which is 7 minutes to determine the noise on the ground. The plane crash took place in the first flight, when the take-off mass was the largest.
