The experts were able to reconstruct the path of Vnukovo segobriga before the disaster. It is established that the driver of the technical machine before the conflict with Falcon lost on the airfield.
The technical Committee was able to establish the alleged causes of the disaster of the French Falcon 50 at Vnukovo airport that killed the President of the company Total Christophe de Margerie. According to the experts, the way of taking off the liner inadvertently blocked the drunk driver snow machines, lost orientation on the airfield. Thanks to the available data, the specialists per second actually managed to resume the chronology of events that led to the collapse of the Falcon.
On the evening of October 20, a group of 3 special vehicles and Ford pickup, in which the driver was the shift supervisor Vladimir Ledenyov, ran the cleaner, cleared the airfield from the snow. 1 of the machines is out of order, after that accompanied by a shift supervisor went to repair, informs "Interfax" referring to a source familiar with the investigation. 2 other cars, one of which was governed by Vladimir Martynenko, which were left unattended and continued to clean 1 of taxiways that is considered a violation of the rules of the air node.
It was discovered that the later machine with Ledeneva returned to the 2 remaining blowers. On 3 cars left in the end part of the 2nd runway (runway-2) without approval of the managers, where 1 of the drivers noticed a broken signal light. The place was motivated professionals, who took it and found that all the remaining lights are lit, and the problem is not a big impact on flight safety.
At the same time the crew of the French aircraft began preparation for take-off and approached the starting place. At that moment, the blowers continued moving. With all this Martynenko was behaving strangely: during the reversal of the column he turned in the wrong direction, behind 2 of the special car and pickup head, then stopped the car, and then continued moving, but in a different direction. Upon reaching the runway-1, where it shouldn't be, he crossed it without a request from the dispatcher and went forth.
For 3 minutes Ledenyov did not notice the unavailability of one of the snow machines. Specialists have found that the shift has allowed such a mistake in consequence of intoxication: his blood was found at 0.19 milligrams of alcohol. The audit also showed that Ledenyov before the crash within an hour't talked to managers, although the regulations had to do it every 15 min..
The driver got out of the group of segobriga, realizing that is not moving back and standing almost 2 minutes, turned around and went back to the runway-1. Having reached it, he stopped directly in the path started rolling liner. French pilots there was nothing I could do, because he found the truck for a few seconds before the conflict. Starting gap, the plane crashed into a car right column and the right wing, turned over and fell to the ground.
Taking into account the movement of segobriga on the runway, the experts concluded that Martynenko almost got lost during the reversal of the column. Trying without the help of others to catch up with her, he didn't go out for it, and the machine electricians who came to watch the broken signal light. Realizing the error, he turned and walked in the opposite direction, in consequence of which went to intercept the plane. In the blood of the driver after 2 hours was found alcohol in the amount of 0.62 milligram.
In the process of investigation Martynenko drew a diagram of his own movement, which certainly contradicts his present movements on the airfield that endorses a version of the loss of orientation in space. The audit showed that the drivers of emergency vehicles at the airport were an integral medical examination just before you begin following the completion of the disposal of the physician audit was conducted as needed. Perhaps this gave the opportunity Martynenko to drink alcohol.
Complicated the situation and that ran off Falcon 50-girl trainee, unaware that both runways at the airport are occupied by machinery. For her it was only the 2nd night shift. The crew of the crashed plane for a few seconds before leaving vehicles on the band received permission to take off from Svetlana Crimson and began to move along the strip, says "Kommersant".
"What kind of car crosses the road?" I managed to ask the colleague 1 of the pilots, but started moving crew did not want to stop. In the 1-x, for the following reasons pilots have already passed the so-called point of no return - the speed of the aircraft was too high. In addition, variants of the actions of the pilots due to the spontaneous emergence of road machinery were just not written in the directions of the company Unijet, which belonged to the Falcon. Them posted after the tragedy.
As we were informed Days.Roux, catastrophe Falcon happened on the night of 21 October. During acceleration the aircraft touched moved on runway snow removal car. The aircraft overturned and exploded, and all 4 aboard this planet have died. In the case of the collapse of the Falcon-50 were detained 5 people. Among them was the driver of segobriga Vladimir Martynenko, head of flight Alexander Kruglov and Manager-trainee Vnukovo airport Svetlana Crimson.
