The official representative of "Kogalymavia": the cause of the crash could be a mechanical effect on the aircraft

Alexander Smirnov, Deputy General Director for Flight Operations of Kogalymavia Airlines, during a press conference announced that the company eliminated technical malfunction versions and pilot errors during the flight of Airbus A321 following the flight Sharm-al-Sheikh to St. Petersburg. Alexander Smirnov reports that during the crash the plane had an “uncontrolled flight”. At this time, the plane literally crumbled into parts.


The official representative of "Kogalymavia": the cause of the crash could be a mechanical effect on the aircraft


According to the representative of the airline, the only reason for such behavior of the aircraft, in which the pilots did not even have time to give a distress signal, may be a "mechanical effect". Alexander Smirnov:

There is no such combination of system failures that could cause the plane to collapse in the air. Before the crash the liner had an uncontrolled flight. The only explainable cause may be a mechanical impact on the aircraft.


The official representative of the airline believes that at the time of the beginning of the fall of the airliner, the crew of the aircraft "completely lost performance." At the same time, Kogalymavia reports that the aircraft of their company now fly around the Sinai Peninsula on the way to Turkey and back.

Recall that the victims of the wreck of the board, en route from Sharm al-Sheikh - St. Petersburg were 224 man. At the crash site found "black boxes", which are in satisfactory condition. In the near future will begin their decoding.

        If the pilots died immediately, the boxes will not show anything interesting. They will only show that this system worked, this did not work. Only the debris collected can be shown in connection with what at that moment the necessary systems did not work. The wreckage checked for everything, from external influences, internal or just technical will show. This is important.

          I think it is premature since, if there is a mechanical effect, then it is either:
          1. A terrorist attack is an explosion inside, and therefore a person with an explosive device was allowed to board (or somehow he was able to deliver it on board). There are already questions to the airport security service in Egypt.

          2. Interception of missiles - after the take-off, the aircraft managed to gain altitude of about 10. MANPADS do not work so far, which means it is air defense of the middle hand. Most likely, whatever the old Soviet system. Egyptian authorities claim that the militants in this area do not have such air defense systems, which means:
          A) They do not own information
          B) Either they’ve been simply protonated, since the activity of such complexes is detected by two times by modern radar reconnaissance systems.
          C) Or the militants had air defense of a modern level - which is generally considered impossible.

          In any case, the data from the black boxes will give an objective assessment. P.t. if it’s a terrorist attack, then logically, whatever group (such as al-Nusra) should already have declared a successful campaign against the infidels. But they are silent.

            But this is just how very likely it can be.
            Everyone knows how passengers and luggage are shumont when boarding.
            But who is stopping the airfield attendants, the same baggage loader, from driving the “infernal machine" along with their belongings?
            Naturally, this populator is here to go - performers and witnesses, for some reason they interfere with everyone.

            So, let them look for which of those servicing this flight has disappeared or somewhere will find his dead carcass.

              Well, yes, nevertheless, the version about the "infernal car" or malfunction, engine fire, explosion are closer to me.
              But not in favor of the latter, the first data from the flight recorders "the crashed A321 aircraft did not give an SOS signal before it hit the ground." That is, the crew was disabled, all at once.

              But the version of the terrorist attack, as a rule, is not immediately taken for the main one, since the probability of its confirmation makes the sending party the culprit of what happened, they did not overlook or overlooked.

              The version with SAMs is a weak version. The plane crashes 100% but this is preceded by a very huge preparation and informatization. Remember how the Malaysian Boeing was shot down over Ukraine. It was led by air traffic controllers, asked to drop to a certain height, it was targeted by several BUK complexes, the activity of which was recorded by means of objective control of the RF Armed Forces.

                  from a cracker the plane will not crumble in the air. information flashed that the body of one of the victims was found 8 km away. from the crash site of the airliner. if this is true, then the plane began to collapse even in the air.

              If you believe our experts, then 95% of all the downfalls, the human factor. I have never heard from airlines or friends and fellow pilots that there is a crew fault. No need to draw conclusions ahead of time.

              Baggage inspection in Egypt (which is Sharm and Hurghada) is not so tough ... They mostly look for corals in their luggage and hand luggage (they say that the fine for the export of corals is 1000 dollars), and the rest is not very interesting for them .. Although, somehow, friends drove corals wrapped in foil ... It happened, many times they brought beer, juice and water from the hotel into the hand luggage, although according to aviation safety standards it is forbidden to take liquids on board (except for those bought in duty duty - free) !!!! Most Egyptians are not reliable ...

                Not. Just took responsibility. From which we can conclude that either they are bluffing, or they made a terrorist attack in a "non-standard" way, and they do not want to shine details and substitute performers.

            A week ago, remember? In Turkey, we insisted on checking the plane, because, before boarding, two outsiders left the cabin. They said that they had mixed up the flight !!!?, The flight attendants began to check the shelves in search of forgotten baggage. Passengers insisted on screening, reluctantly fulfilled their requirement. The salon was checked by one person (!) The initiative group was not allowed on the flight. "The crew commander does not want to fly with you!" I immediately remembered this episode.

            I say that the boxes will show the failure of a system. If the pilots died immediately audio from the cockpit, we will not hear anything, if we do not immediately hear the conversation, this or that system does not work. Only after a full examination of the debris will it be possible to understand. You don’t think that they will talk to each other: a missile of such a system then hit the left engine and also defeated the fuselage in that place or in the luggage compartment an improvised 5 kg TNT equivalent exploded. They don’t know where, they know one thing from the sensors, these or those systems refused. hi

          Nonsense, negotiations are a scanty part of the recorded information, moreover, we have different “boxes” - MC61 and SARPP-12. For example, the helicopter will retain altitude, speed, pitch, revolutions, pitch, roll, one-time sensor commands. But speech is often not restored, the wire burned out. Boxes will allow you to restore the picture, even if the crew was not in the cockpit.

        The plane could collapse from overloads. I do not believe that such a colossus could plan with the engines turned off and make an emergency landing.
        A couple of years ago, I don’t remember what story I saw on the airbus landing on TV. After touching the strip, the entire body began to bend like a sausage in a wave. Wings didn’t just fold into a tube. it is not surprising, in the pursuit of weight loss, modern technologies have been applied, but they do not provide sufficient rigidity. I saw on TV a reset. Fuselage sections of 5-6 meters long are connected with glue and bolts.
        We need a new security standard proposed in the Soviet Union. Camera on Coca (top view) Camera on the nose below (bottom plan) Camera in the cockpit and salons. On-line telemetry to the ground throughout the flight, either to the company’s office or the regional traffic safety center.

            This is easy to explain. The tail lies 5 km from the fuselage. So fell off in the air. If it fell off the train, then the plane immediately lost its stabilizers. Therefore, it should begin to "twist" like maple seeds. This is an instant loss of speed. The only question is: what caused the tail to tear off?

            These are the so-called elastic strains.
            And there are fatigue deformations and subsequent fractures. This airplane had an “injury” at the back of the hull.
            The bones of the skeleton are also elastic. Military and sports doctors, choreographers and trainers are familiar with such a concept as “marching fractures” (Deutschland) for recruits, dancers, and athletes. hi

          As for one of the so-called black boxes - in simple terms - this is a tape recorder. And to "decrypt" its contents, you just need to listen to what is written there.

          No engine failures, even - both of them at once, can give such an effect, plus - the expansion of the debris by 5-8 km will clearly mean that the plane began to fall apart in the air.
          I really do not like it when they invent versions that are absolutely not suitable in these particular conditions.
          What they just do not weave: the engines, and the lower part of the tail that was once damaged during landing, and the actions of the crew (and this is the favorite version during the investigations - the crew died, we put everything down on them).
          Here is my opinion: definitely - a terrorist attack.
          let's see what the investigations come to.
          And yet - the SPU / radio button, on the civilian sides is on the handles of the helms, and that prevented two experienced pilots from pressing this button and screaming at least something for the ground services, says only one thing - THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO DO IT!

            You are right .... It annoys you that objective data from the flight recorders does not give objective data. Just post a record and there will be no speculation. And then there are so many speculations of absurdity. When the board fell in Kazan, the truth was not told, and the son of the hands was sitting in the cabin. Tatarstan. He killed people.

              When the board fell in Kazan, the truth was not told, and the son of the hands was sitting in the cabin. Tatarstan. He killed people.

              Lies, rumors. I live on Victory Avenue on the 11th floor. At that moment he went to the window. I heard how strange the engines worked, with a rattle and uneven. When a gearbox is grinding off a power tool, something like this. About such a rude sound. then the motors and the explosion roared. The truth is that the airplane should have been written off a year earlier. Another truth, those who flew the previous flight also had unforgettable impressions of the flight, read the comments. Weak version associated with the chief of the FSB in the RT. who was returning from Moscow on the same flight. The crew did not have enough height and power of the engines. They did not in vain request the second round.
              Let's wait for the official investigation data.

                Minus set in vain. From my window you can see the Volga along its entire length along Kazan, the opposite coast, in good weather you can see the bridge across the Volga above Kazan, at night the airport lights. If the wind from that side is heard as planes take off and land. Documents from pilots are not entirely eligible, yes.
                And the fact that the crew during landing allowed outsiders to be in the cockpit, I do not believe. hi

            Definitely a terrorist attack.

            If this is so, then this version will be very unprofitable for the Egyptian authorities, because then the lion's part of the guilt will be theirs. That there is no security at the airports, the work of special services too. Tourists can wave a pen. And together.

        "Something in the cabin," which can lead to the destruction of an airplane in the air, is nothing more than an explosion.

        And if everything was so (fell apart in the air), then this is TERRAKT.

        The responsibility for which lies entirely with the security service of the departure airport ...

        But about this, carefully, as about the version, the assumption.

        We are waiting for objective data. Including, from chemists and explosion engineers.

        Kogalym (Khant. Kogolym is a black spot)
        Has anyone wondered what the word means before calling the airline? I'm afraid that having learned about the true interpretation of this word, hardly anyone began to use its services. And just by rearranging the letters in the name of the airline, instead of “Kogalymavia”, we get “Kolymagavia” - which also does not add pluses to it.

            Rename is also an option. There was the city of Akmola (white grave) in Kazakhstan (after Akmolinsk and Tselinograd), it was decided that the name was unsound and not suitable for the capital. We decided to rename the capital into the capital in Kazakh - now it is Astana.
            But there is another version about Kogalym - the name from the Khanty kokh, kog “long, long” and aling “beginning”, which can be understood as a long source of the river. Although the latest version looks like an attempt by the local population to refine the name of their small homeland.

            A city is a city - it stands on the ground, and airline planes fly. There is another saying: "As you name the ship, it will sail." And so far, “Kogalymavia” confirms this fact by plane accidents. hi
            And once again I say that if people flying the planes of this airline knew the meaning of the word "Kogolym", then they would hardly have used the services of this company, except perhaps from the hopelessness and lack of another carrier.

      but on the topic, annoying that again not a plane, but spare parts. in order for the plane to break up into many pieces (into two three more possible), you need a combination of very fantastic factors. I don’t even talk about Boeing in the Donbass - everything is clear: the transporter flew, and dropped the spare parts for corpses and a couple of high-explosive bombs (it’s not for nothing that Sharya has a scan clip on this topic) ... but this is what we actually find ourselves in such a stories, it is annoying.
      and more: how will this card be played? Boeing is clear: sanctions were immediately imposed on the scammers. and here, after we practically blocked the channel for transporting stolen oil products through the territory of Syria, here in Egypt, which suddenly became rich for some reason (we should not forget that there was a full-fledged civil war there recently), which has a Suez canal, falls into pieces in the air and for a strange reason burning even on the ground, our passenger plane ... and with black boxes again say that they will decrypt no earlier than in a month. and more recently, the black boxes of a crashed plane (not to remind which one) were decrypted almost the next day ....

            .. The vertical speed was small .... According to the info shown on TV yesterday - 2000m lost in 1 minute, and this is about 35m / sec .... It is not likely to dive ... And the speed recorded is about 175 km / h .. ..Therefore, the colleague made such conclusions ... Yes, and you can enter the corkscrew at any height and speed (even at supersonic) ....

        Once on TV there was a documentary series about air crashes. So there they showed how the plane fell apart after a cargo hatch tore off of it in an oncoming stream. And in the late 80s (when I worked at an aircraft factory) somewhere in Central Asia, the IL-86 tore off a large sheet of skin, as I don’t know how it got on the plane.

      No doubt - only the Almighty.
      We are just people.

      The general meant something else.
      He talked about military aircraft of the Russian Federation flying in Syria.
      The general would not be informed about the impending attack.
      And those who plan it and who commit it are not interested in excess advertising.

    I heard such an assertion that pilots of military aircraft, when completing a mission, prefer to maintain a pressure of no more than 0.3 atm in pressurized cabins in order to get rid of light concussion during explosive depressurization and continue to operate the aircraft. Is it so?
    And how can this be correlated with the last episode of the A321 flying to St. Petersburg? What pressure is maintained in the cockpit of a civilian aircraft? Do passengers have any chance to survive after an explosive depressurization of the passenger compartment, including after undermining the explosive charge inside or outside the side?

        In the cockpits of passenger aircraft, a pressure corresponding to approximately 4000-5000 m is maintained.This allows you to not overload the fuselage structure with an excessive margin of safety (the volume is large, and the difference between the outboard pressure and the pressure inside the fuselage is very decent), while you can breathe without oxygen devices.

      “For this reason, for the safety of the crew and passengers, the cabin of almost all commercial aircraft is sealed. The current standard for aircraft cabin sealing is defined in section 25.841 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) of the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA).
      According to this standard, the pressure in the passenger compartment under normal operating conditions shall not be higher than the pressure at an altitude of 2 m. "

      The answer is about 550 mmHg. for 2 450 m.

        Most likely you are right. I could be wrong with the numbers (unfortunately, the memory fails a bit), but the fact that the "height" in the cabin is clearly above ground level is a fact.
        By the way, on domestic aircraft, pressure equalization during reduction occurs much smoother than on American, due to a different algorithm for the operation of equalizing valves. Therefore, on landing in Tu or Ilah you feel much more comfortable than on Boeing.

    According to the representative of the airline, the only reason for this behavior of the aircraft, in which the pilots did not even have time to give a distress signal, could be “mechanical impact”.

    What, an explosion on board, a defeat from MANPADS, an air defense missile or Air-to-air?
    Without a detailed investigation of the wreckage and black box information, these are at least empty statements.
    The version of a possible engine (sabotage) malfunction previously mentioned in the media is no longer being considered?

      The version with MANPADS can be safely ruled out - the aircraft could not reach the altitude, the more the rocket would hit the engine, but the plane would continue to move in the second - this already happened, and the crew would have sent a SOS signal.

        It is oxidized and corrodes "like hello!". Aluminum is a very active metal. A thin film of oxide on top of the metal itself saves him from corrosion, but it is worth breaking it, mechanically or chemically, and the metal instantly corrodes. If in the place of contact of two products, one of which is aluminum (duralumin), mechanical stress occurs, for example, friction, oxide film and any other protective coating is constantly broken and the corrosion process goes deeper. At some point, it may “rust” through and through.
        Of the non-ferrous metals under atmospheric conditions, only “noble” metals are freed from oxidation. Gold, palladium, platinum, etc.

      The pressure in the pressurized cabin of the aircraft is maintained in such a way that the pressure differential between the cabin and outboard is maintained at a level of 0,5. Those. "height" in the cabin does not exceed 2,8 km. When the pressure in the cabin drops to values ​​corresponding to a height of 4 km, oxygen masks automatically fall out. The crew alarm about problems with a boost starts to be issued in advance.

    Maybe it’s time for aircraft designers to think about saving the crew and passengers in case of various types of accidents with civilian ships? Perhaps of course it will be expensive, but somehow I don’t want to be a hostage to a situation where nothing depends on you. In military aircraft there are catapults and parachutes for saving people, and in civil aviation, only belts (that would be like living sitting).
    Is there really no system on presidential planes (we are not considering Poland) that can save the lives of the first persons of the states?

        I offer a capsule or two for the crew and passengers on parachutes.
        Let this lead to an increase in the cost of aircraft design, but the lives of people are worth it.
        Perhaps it would help if the explosion was of a small capacity and not in the cabin, but in the luggage compartment, for example.
        For example, if there was such an opportunity to choose to buy plane tickets equipped with a safety capsule and not. I think people would overpay 10-20 thousand rubles. for the safety of yourself and your children.

          Worked out and long ago refused. Over 95% of accidents occur during take-off and landing - here the capsule will not save. Yes, and the exit of the capsule from the aircraft body, the device of the parachute system, etc. They represent great complexity and do not differ in reliability. This is in addition to a significant rise in price. You can actually put small business planes on all kinds of airplanes, but there the percentage of accidents on takeoff and landing is even higher - it makes no sense.

    It seems that the tail part fell off first. Earlier it was reported that this plane already suffered damage during landing, having hit the landing strip with its tail part .... "Sources in the Federal Air Transport Agency reported that an approximate picture of the crash of the liner has already been established by the location of the bodies of the dead and the wreckage of the liner. As LifeNews learned, the first victims A321 crash became the passengers of the tail of the liner.
    After the tail of the airbus fell off at an altitude of almost 9 thousand meters, some of the passengers fell outside. Search teams found some of the bodies of the victims a few kilometers from the crash site of the liner. "...

        Test pilot, Hero of the Russian Federation on this occasion said that this is complete nonsense.
        (About explosive depressurization on the one where the liner was) A person can lose consciousness for only a few seconds, and not everyone. He also said that there were cases of this type of depressurization, when the Boeing was landing with a piece of torn skin 2X7 meters in size. At the same time, people were alive.

    But doesn’t pilots have a few tens of seconds to negotiate during depressurization? because they are sitting in a separate compartment, maybe depressurization is not so strong and will immediately affect them? It is very likely that the pilots did not somehow appear in the cockpit at the time of the loss of communication, or they were already incapacitated

    you are naive people .... who will reveal the truth to you?
    The terrorist attack is not beneficial for the authorities - after all, most of the society will demand bloody revenge on the organizers (and for this they will have to bomb the Saudis and the USA), and the other (small part) will withdraw troops and stop bombing ISIS (surrender to the USA).
    Escalation for the Russian Federation is extremely unprofitable, it is beneficial to the United States !!!!
    Therefore, there will be very quiet showdowns at the level of special services with liquidation and strange explosions.
    The official version is a fall due to technical malfunctions.
    It’s just snappy and the company of airline junk purchasing officials is trying to translate arrows, therefore it is throwing ambiguous statements into the network

    Like it was in Loxbury. Enough holes in the skin - and
    depressurization.

      No, then the pilots would have time for communication, and an explosion in the luggage compartment is unlikely to destroy the aircraft so quickly.

        Second matter. I remember showing the experiment. Sealed old passenger plane. They created inside such a pressure that would correspond to a real difference at a height And from inside they pierced the skin. As a result, a huge plating area was torn out. Summary - in reality, the plane is falling apart, people die instantly

    These will say anything, I can even break about a collision with a flying saucer. It would be necessary to wait. Too many fortune-tellers and psychics in the distance. There are no facts on hand, but expert opinions are riveting, as they remove damage from a photo. Annoying. It’s necessary, it’s necessary to wait, not to dance on the bones

    This side damaged the tail during an incident at Cairo Airport in 2001 (when landing with the tail during landing on the runway), when the Turks were still flying on it, the damage was significant! How the Turks fixed it a big question! The tail of the aircraft fell to the ground first, respectively, separated from the aircraft first, in the photo there are no signs of burning or traces of an explosion, the edges of the tail are not curved! As a poor-quality repair version, breaking an unrepaired crack in the last flight, the Kogalymavia management is most afraid of this version, their fault will be, though indirect, but more than obvious! Buying a “broken” airbus is certainly a tin! Hopefully after decryption of the black boxes there may be clarity!

    There are so many versions for now, and there is no result, and it’s not worthwhile to take off such accounts as intentionally destroying an aircraft in order to get insurance for the aircraft, and this can be.

    A very confident flight director excludes the possibility of a technical malfunction or crew error without waiting for any intelligible information. Too little data. The fact that the pilots didn’t go into external communications says anything, during the Tu-154 crash near Donetsk, a crew of five people fought for life for several minutes, the cry was scary in the cockpit, but no one got into the external communication. The same is the case with the downed Siberian Carcass, although the flight engineer was found in an oxygen mask, that is, he managed to put it on. And the A320 Armenian crew that fell into Sochi in the sea, did not transmit anything during the departure to the second round, and in Irkutsk the Vladivostok crew, and near Mezhdurechensk and Uch-Kuduk, land to them all in peace. Engine failure, this is not a special problem now, planes are designed so that when the engine is off during takeoff, the remaining engine's thrust is sufficient to continue takeoff and maintain a certain climb gradient. At the echelon, the required draft is much lower. Failure of two at once is certainly possible, but it is very unlikely. Yes, and the case of a successful non-motor landing of the A320 on the Hudson, suggests that there are options. A large raid and experience of the commander: this of course greatly reduces the likelihood of an error, but does not completely exclude it, he could even temporarily leave the workplace in the cockpit, for example, going to the toilet.

    There is no such combination of system failures that could cause the plane to collapse in the air. Before the crash the liner had an uncontrolled flight. The only explainable cause may be a mechanical impact on the aircraft.
    The experts will figure it out and say the result of the investigation. So, we will be patient and wait for the result.

    My opinion is that company representatives want to blame everything on the attack. We will wait for the results of the decryption of the black boxes. At first they wrote that the crew had repeatedly complained about the plane, then, as if on command, they shut up and spoke in chorus about the attack.

    An ice block could be dropped from a stealth drone in the opposite course. When it is fragmented, a field of fragments could be formed flying at supersonic relative speed to the cockpit of the aircraft. This field of fragments could penetrate the cockpit in many places. After that, the ice fragments could melt and evaporate.
