About 40 minutes after departure, while flying at a speed of 140 km/h, the crew encountered downdrafts and the airplane lost height. Due to mountainous terrain, the crew made a turn to the right but the airplane continued to descend. The captain attempted an emergency landing when, at a speed of 85 km/h, the aircraft struck trees and crashed in a wooded area located 16 km southeast of Dabady. Both pilots were injured and evacuated to Irkutsk a day later.

Probable cause:
Engine failure due to the damage of the bearings of the planetary gear from the first stage, leading to vibration and destruction of the turbine. It is possible the damage to the bearings was caused by the presence of aluminium or silicon oxide. However, it was not possible to determinate the source of this contamination.

The aircraft was making the regular SBI778 (S7778) flight from Moscow-Domodedovo to Irkutsk. On approach, weather conditions were poor with low ceiling and thunderstorms. On landing on runway 30 (3,165 metres long), the aircraft did not decelerate as expected and overran the runway before colliding with a concrete wall. The aircraft burnt and was completely destroyed. It seems that a hydraulic failure occurred on brake system, after the reverse thrust system was applied. The aircraft accumulated 59,865 flying hours for 12,550 cycles. While the captain accumulated 10,611 flying hours, the copilot has 9,771 flying hours.
