Chronology of events:

The crew reported on readiness for landing. The dispatcher said: "Landing additionally, removing 2,5, the course 94, below the glide path 25, to the left of the landing 100, reduce the decrease." The crew confirmed the instruction. The commander at an altitude of 80 m, having established a visual contact with landmarks, found the position of the aircraft to be non-landing, and began to formulate a decision about the missed approach, which confirms a decrease to 2,5 m / s of vertical speed and a vigorous turn to the right for the landing course. The dispatcher said: "Follow without a reduction." At an altitude of 60 m at this time, the VLR and PSTN signal again triggered. The flight engineer said: "Let's go, commander." The decision to go to the second round was taken late (only after 5 seconds - for 2 seconds before collision with obstacles). The steering wheel was completely taken over. The engine mode was increased to takeoff. But, the presence of a large vertical descent rate and a marginally low altitude caused the plane to collide with trees at an altitude of 20 m at a distance of 2000 m from the strip. Continuing to decline, the plane began to collide with trees (for 231 m right wing, for 282 m left wing from the point of contact). After combing the forest, he collided in the field with the ground in 1700 m from the strip (between the LPR and the DPRM). The plane before the first touch with the ground moved with the right bank of 8 degrees, with a pitch angle of at least 15 degrees and a slide to the right wing. These effects were created from a sharp take on the steering wheel by the crew. The plane braked finally in 381 m from the place of the first touch. The fuselage broke in two between the frames 31 and 32 with the rotation of the front part at 51 degree in relation to the rear. Near 10 frame, the fuselage was deformed with a deviation to the left of the pilot cabin at 2-3 degrees from the axis of the aircraft. The second engine separated. Three passengers and a flight engineer were killed. 40 people had injuries of varying severity.

Amendment: Planting further - so rightly said manager planting. So I watched it fall, because He worked as an air traffic controller at the time, and was in the starting control room, saw him about five seconds. when he crossed the landing course from left to right. The commander did not have time to answer, simply press on the frequency was.
