MOSCOW, November 21. /ITAR-TASS/. In a go-around approach the crew of an airliner Boeing-737, which crashed at the international airport in the city of Kazan, dropped the speed critically that led to a fatal nosedive under the angle of 75 degrees and the airliner hit the ground practically in the vertical position, Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said at a meeting of the Russian government’s presidium here on Thursday.
“According to the preliminary results of deciphering the flight data recorder it was found that in a go-around approach with the altitude ascent up to 700 meters at the Kazan airport the airliner Boeing had lost its flying speed and fell into a nosedive with the angle of nosedive at minus 75 degrees,” the minister said. “The airplane hit the ground at the speed of more than 450 kilometers per hour actually in the vertical position,” he added.
