On September 23, during the flight, the Mi-8 helicopter of the Khabarovsk Aviation Rescue Center of the EMERCOM of Russia discovered the wreckage of an alleged An-26 aircraft near the Khrebtov mountain, at an altitude of more than 900 meters.

On the eve of the flight crew stopped communicating, the plane disappeared from the radar.

The regional department indicated that the aircraft crashed in a hard-to-reach area. Due to tall trees and strong winds, reaching 18 m / s, the rescue helicopter fails to land at the crash site of the An-26, so the ground group of forces and means of the Emergency Situations Service and the Emergencies Ministry's rescuers moved there.

To date, the fate of all six crew members remains unknown.

The Investigative Committee withdrew the documentation for the An-26, clarified in the Eastern Interregional SU on the transport of the RF IC.

"At the Khabarovsk (Novy) airport, fuel samples were seized; chemical forensic examination appointed; the seizure of the documentation for the pre-flight medical examination of the crew members and the meteorological weather forecast along the route was carried out; flight and technical documentation for the aircraft and crew members, - the department specified. Aviation technicians of JSC "Flight Checks and Systems", who carried out maintenance of the aircraft before the last flight, were interrogated. In addition, a card-order for operational maintenance and a building for flight were seized".

It's worth reminding that An-26 disappeared the day before. The aircraft served the air navigation of the Khabarovsk airport. There were six people on board. The board carried out a technical flight to test the communications equipment. The vessel belonged to ZAO Flight Checks and Systems.
