MOSCOW, September 9 (Itar-Tass) - The engines of an airplane Yak-42, which crashed near Yaroslavl, were in order, a source in the Interstate Aviation Committee reported on Friday.
“The preliminary processing of the fixed parametric data enables to find that before the takeoff the stabilizer was put at the position of 8.7 degrees for nose-up pitching and the wing flaps were placed in the takeoff position at 20 degrees. The engines were running until the collision with the obstacles,” the source said.
The laboratory of the Interstate Aviation Committee has copied the parametric and cockpit voice data for further processing and deciphering from the Yak-42 flight recorders RA-424434 of the Yak Service air company.
The airplane Yak-42 crashed after the takeoff from the Yaroslavl airport on September 7. The airliner was carrying the ice hockey team Lokomotiv to Belarus for a match with Dynamo Minsk. A striker Alexander Galimov and a steward Alexander Sizov survived from 45 people onboard the plane. They were brought to the Moscow hospitals.
