Chronology of events:

The crew, when lowering from the train, allowed the deviation from the axis of the route to the left at 11,5 km. Having radar control, the approach dispatcher did not report the evasion and allowed further reduction to 500 m. Not knowing its location, the crew began to turn left and allowed a large deviation from the scheme. At the intersection at an altitude of 500 m of the landing line (higher than the calculated glide path at 300 m) at a distance of 4 km from the 20 band, the crew began to drastically decrease, instead of going off to a second round. The air traffic controller did not prevent the aircraft from deflecting. Only at an altitude of 170 m the crew made a run-off in violation of the care scheme, laying a steep turn, having a bank up to 30 degrees, gaining an altitude of 200 m and subsequently began to decline. The exit from the bend with the decrease was made at a height of 90 m at a distance of 890 m from the central line of the strip and at an angle to it. Bortmehanik and the co-pilot offered the commander to go to the second round, but he continued approach to land. The plane at the altitude of 4-7 m passed the end of the strip, at a speed of 250 km / h (instead of the planned 210-200 km / h) with a roll of 10 degrees. The commander gave the command to turn on the reverse thrust of the engines. The engines were fitted with a small gas and turned on the reverse when the aircraft flew over the 190 m, then the reverse was turned off, and at the distance of 965 m from the end of the strip the commander decided to go off to a second round. The actions of the crew were chaotic - during this time the flaps were removed, again released and again removed. At a speed of 180 km / h at an altitude of 4-7m, trying to avoid collision with trees, the commander took over the helm, but at an speed of 160 km / h the plane collided with power lines, trees and fell to the ground at a distance of 2 000 m From the end of the strip. He hit the mound, passing on the fuselage 130 m. The aircraft had significant damage.

The findings, which investigated plane crash

aircraft plane crash cause:

• violation of the approach procedure, which caused a direct access to the preplant at high speed and altitude close to the band;

• plane after missed, disrupting care scheme came to the band with the roll at high speed;

• attempt missed after the reverse braking device management errors flaps and engines;

• lack of control over the flight of the aircraft and air traffic controllers of the ADP in the performance of the crew of non-standard missed approach and the approach.

Collision with obstacles aircraft was due to a combination of factors:

• violation of the crew members of the flight manual, PPGA-95,
