MOSCOW, November 2 (Itar-Tass) — The Yak-42 airplane was fully in good order before the takeoff from the Tunoshna airfield outside Yaroslavl.
“We found out that the Yak-42 airplane was in good order and no failures in the operation of the airplane and the engines were found. Neither fires nor explosions broke out before the crash,” the chief of the technical committee of the Interstate Aviation Commission (MAK) Alexei Morozov said.
The MAK technical committee has formulated 90 expertise results on all aspects of the air crash, he said.
“The technical committee found that the Yak-42 airplane was in good order before the takeoff from Yaroslavl. No failures in the operation of the airplane, the engine and the avionics, including the braking system, were found, including a fire or an explosion did not break out before the crash,” Morozov said.
He also noted that the flight was made exactly up to the schedule, the flight was made in good weather and MAK had no claims to the fuel.
Phenobarbital, which has a negative impact on the nervous system, was found in the blood of the second pilot of an Yak-42 airplane, which crashed outside Yaroslavl.
“Phenobarbital has a strong inhibitory influence on the central nervous system. After taking the medicine people cannot be permitted to make flights,” he said.
The second pilot had health problems and turned for medical aid, Morozov said. He had leg coordination disturbances and the deep sensibility disorders of lower extremities.
“According to the medical documentation produced for the second pilot with the reference to a neurologist supervising him, the second pilot had weaker reflexes in the legs since 2000 and weaker reflexes in the hands since 2005,” Morozov underlined.
