Russian Interstate Aviation Committee has recovered the record of the last flight of crashed An-148 plane, RIA Novosti reported.
According to the source, “the special situation” began to develop in two and a half minutes after the plane departed at an altitude of about 1300 meters and a speed of 465-470 kilometers per hour.
Preliminary analysis showed that the disaster could have occurred because of incorrect data on the speed of flight. The error of the instruments was reportedly related to the icing of the DPD (full pressure receivers) with the heating systems switched off.
As reported earlier, Russian passenger plane crashed in Moscow region on Sunday several minutes after leaving Moscow's Domodedovo airport with 71 people on board.
