Aircraft flight hours:
The departure from Podkamennaya Tunguska was precipitated (less than 4 minutes between the clearance and the takeoff). After liftoff, while climbing at a height of 8-10 meters, the airplane reached a super critical angle of attack, stalled, banked to the left and crashed 525 meters past the runway end and 77 meters to the left of the extended centerline. The passenger, a company mechanic, was killed while both pilots were seriously injured.
Wrong takeoff configuration on part of the crew who forgot to put the trim tab of the horizontal stabilizer into neutral position prior to takeoff.
