CDAADDSA little over 40 days have passed since the tragic plane crash in Yaroslavl that took lives of Lokomotiv's players and the plane crew. Forty days is a significant date for the Russians for religious reasons. A special memorial service was held in Yaroslavl to mark the 40 days.
On Wednesday, the news emerged that the investigators are working on the final report on the causes of the crash. The report is set to list pilot error as the cause of the crash.
Based on the data recovered from the flight recorders, investigators were able to imitate the conditions the plane was in when it overshot the runway and didn't take off as it should have. Scientists concluded that the doomed plane crashed not due to technical difficulties, and not due to the quality of fuel, but due to the braking applied to the landing gear. This braking momentum was not created by technical difficulties with the plane, but by the pilot who put his feet on the brake pedals, according to Russian newspaper "Kommersant."Read More »from KHL selling Lokomotiv commemorative gear to benefit families
