Baku crash cause revealed

The interim report on a 4 March fatal Ilyushin Il-76TD accident at Baku in Azerbaijan reveals that the aircraft went out of control just after take-off because the crew failed to select the flaps to their take-off setting during pre-flight checks. Released by the CIS Interstate Aviation Commission (MAK) in conjunction with Azerbaijani and Ukrainian authorities, the report says crew fatigue and a rushed departure were contributory factors. Three of the seven crew were killed when the Ukrainian Azov Avia Il-76 freighter took off following a refuelling stop en route to Kabul, Afghanistan.
